The Welsh national football team will wear pink ribbons during their World Cup qualifier against Scotland tonight in support of the ongoing search for April Jones, Wales Online reports.

The squad, including manager Chris Coleman, will wear the ribbons which have become emblematic after April's family asked people to wear them to show their support for the search.

Five-year-old April was last seen playing with friends near her home in Machynlleth, mid-Wales on Monday October 1.
