The mum of schoolgirl April Jones will pay tribute to her daughter in a special Christmas Carol service in December, to support the families of other missing people.

Coral Jones will remember her five year old daughter at the church service, in memory of the missing.

April was snatched by Mark Bridger as she played outside her family home in Machynlleth.

But despite the biggest search in British history, her body has never been found.

Mark Bridger is currently serving a life sentence after being found guilty of murdering April in October 2012.

On 1 October 2012 my beautiful daughter April went missing.

Despite huge support from the police and the public, our search for her ended in tragedy.

On the 11 December this year Missing People will be holding a carol service in Cardiff to remember all those that have been and still are missing.

This is a chance for families who are suffering the heartache of missing someone to come together with supporters of the charity and pay tribute to their loved one.

– Coral Jones
