Elwen Evans QC, prosecuting, has asked Mark Bridger about April Jones' parents, Paul and Coral.
Mr Bridger said: "I can't even start to understand what they were going through. It was through speaking to [my boss] and the postman that I knew there was a huge search going on."
Miss Evans: "You had killed an unknown little girl."
Mr Bridger: "Yes."
Miss Evans: "You didn't even bother to find out who that little girl was."
Mr Bridger: "What was I supposed to do? Knock on people's doors?"
He said he 'didn't recognise' April that night because it was 'dark'.
He told the court: "My instinct was to go to the police station."
Miss Evans: "Did you go?"
Mr Bridger: "No."
Mark Bridger is back in the witness box at Mold Crown Court this morning, being cross-examined by the prosecution.
He has been questioned about his movements on October 2nd - the day after April went missing.
Elwen Evans QC, for the prosecution, asked him what sort of state he was in at around 8.30am that morning.
Mr Bridger replied: "I was in a completely different state to normal... the realisation of me killing a child is with me. I'm distraught, I'm upset, I've had a drink. It's slightly different to a normal morning."
Metropolitan Police have said they are not treating the emergency landing at Heathrow Airport as a terrorist incident.
Two men have been released on bail following their arrest for making alleged offensive comments on Twitter about the murder of a British soldier in Woolwich.
