one of the most horrific child murderers that there’s ever been

 
“Mark Bridger has got to be one of the most horrific child murderers that there’s ever been.”
Andy John Det. Superintendent, Dwfed-Powys Police
 
How Mark Bridger abducted April is still a mystery.
April was playing with some other young children on their bicycles. How Bridger persuaded or even threatened April to join him is known only to him.
The little that is known is that she goes missing at around 7:20PM.
She is last seen entering the ‘wrong’ side of a vehicle or rather, a left hand drive vehicle.
 
But a father often feels he knows when his daughter, his youngest, is in trouble.
Paul Jones knows the exact moment he realised his daughter was gone forever.

“10:33 on 1st October 2012.
 I was standing outside by the back gate and there’s a weird feeling just for a split second and it’s almost like your heart stops and you can’t explain it. It just drops to your stomach and then it bounces back up and you can’t explain it, I can’t explain it - but I knew she wasn’t there.”
