We are all no doubt aware of the news and events around the village , I also noted that Cave Rescue is now involved in the search

Do we know which teams are involved - I understand MCRO is

The man held for the past three days over the disappearance of five-year-old April Jones has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Officers said they now required only professional searchers in the hunt

I think you will find the CRO's fall under that category nowadays

I don't think Rufenig was implying otherwise.

There have been hundreds if not thousands of locals out searching - these will be the people who have been asked to stand down.

Exactly!
Does calling out the C.R.O.s suggest significant information?

They've been using specialist search teams (or rather individuals with particular skills in teams) from the start in conjunction with locals, Mountain rescue with dogs, kayakers for rivers etc. Don't know if any of these teams have been stood down or not.

There are a lot of mines in the Dylife area which is quite near to Machynlleth. Most of these are adits, and can be quickly searched. Personally I think Mark Bridger should be releast. Once the locals get hold of him, he will sing like a canary.

This isn't the forum for advocating a lynch mob, i'm sure you can do that on Daily Mail website if you wish. Keep to the topic of CRO involvement which is applicable to users of the site.

I think its more a case of not wanting "civillians" finding a body, it is a nasty experience for someone not hardened to it, I still remember my first on CRO duty.

Or more likely not wanting hordes of untrained people trampling over and disturbing any evidence.

Seriously chaps, is post-pub speculation really what you want to do ?

Sad as this whole episode is, I really don't think this is the forum for it.

See post by Christ Wigg above.

Ask away buddy-boy but just make sure its elsewhere. Neither the girl nor her family are going to benefit by speculative points being raised on mining history forums so try and keep it to the practical implications of the various search & rescue organisations input if you don't mind.

I would think that co-ordinating large numbers of willing but unskilled volunteers across terrain like that, with the river in spate was a distraction the police could well do without.

Can't speak for Wales, but in the Dales the CRO are quite regularly called out on searches. They have the manpower and experience to search the more difficult areas: quarries, caves etc. IP: 86.20.198.141
