We've nearly completed our searches here [in Machynlleth] and we're now focusing our search operation today in the Ceinws area and for the rest of the weekend if we shouldn't find April today, throughout this weekend in and around the surrounding towns and villages.
He added that there has been an "influx of officers from other parts of the UK" to help with the search.
