MACHYNLLETH, England, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- British investigators have begun digging in two locations and say they "have a realistic prospect" of finding 5-year-old April Jones, who was last seen Oct. 1.
Mechanical diggers were brought into the tiny village Ceinws, near the town where April was last seen, as well as the hometown of the main suspect in the case, Mark Bridger, on Friday, The Daily Telegraph reported.
"We have got diggers out in Ceinws," said Superintendent Ian John, who is heading the investigation.
John said crews were searching a 99 square mile area.
"We still have quite a lot of areas to search where we believe we still have a realistic prospect of locating her," he said.
April went missing on Oct. 1 in the town of Machynlleth.
Bridger, 46, a former lifeguard and slaughterhouse worker, has been arrested and charged with murder, child abduction and perverting the course of justice.
