Hundreds came together in prayer in Machynlleth on Sunday for an emotionally charged church service in honour of missing April Jones.
Starting from the Bryn-y-Gog estate where the 5-year-old schoolgirl's family home stands, the procession filed silently to the service.

Residents came together at St Peter's Church, the spiritual centre of the close-knit community.
The Reverend Kathleen Rogers began the service on a sombre note, telling the congregation:
The Bishop of Bangor, the Right Reverend Andrew John, thanked the police and the community for their efforts searching for the missing girl, and urged residents of Machynlleth to stick together "for April".
As the search for April continued, Superintendent Ian John renewed his appeal for "any scrap of information" about her whereabouts, adding that the community needed time to grieve
During the final hymn in the church service, 'All Things Bright and Beautiful,' donations were collected for the fund set up for April Jones's family.
Former lifeguard Mark Bridger, 46, was charged on Saturday with the abduction and murder of April.
Local man Bridger is also accused of perverting the course of justice and will appear before Aberystwyth Magistrates' Court on Monday.
