Police arrested a 46-year-old man today in connection with the disappearance of five-year-old April Jones near her mid-Wales home.
A massive hunt continued last night for the five-year-old girl, feared to have been abducted.
She was last seen by another child getting into a grey or light-coloured van near her home in Machynlleth on Monday evening.
Hundreds of local residents joined police in the search for her and cars going in and out of the small town, which has a population of 2,000, were being stopped and searched.
Dyfed Powys Police said April was wearing a purple knee-length coat with grey fur around the hood, a white polo shirt and black trousers.
The edge-of-town Bryn-y-Gog estate where April was abducted is in a rural setting on the southern outskirts of Snowdonia National Park.
Today scores of volunteers were waiting outside the market town's leisure centre in the teeming rain to be sent out searching.
Detective Superintendent Reg Bevan said he was not sure whether April was led to the vehicle or went there herself.
"The indications are that she got into the vehicle willingly," he added.
Mr Bevan said the force would be combing through municipal and private CCTV footage to find clues.
