Police vowed today to continue the search for the body of missing April Jones into 2013 "if need be."
Police revealed that the continued intensive hunt for the body of the missing five-year-old schoolgirl is still targeting more than 300 separate search locations.
More than 150 officers continue to take part in the meticulous hunt through 60 square kilometres of mid Wales countryside.
Now into its fourth week since she disappeared from a housing estate in Machynlleth, the search shows no sign of abating.
The schoolgirl was abducted from the Bryn-y-Gog estate where she lived on the evening of October 1.
But desperate hopes she would be found safe and well were dashed when local man Mark Bridger, 46, was charged with her murder.
He appeared at Aberystwyth magistrates' Court on October 8 charged with murder, abduction and perverting the course of justice.
Dyfed Powys Police search adviser Inspector Gareth Thomas said: "I have been humbled by the commitment of the officers taking part in the searches."
