False alarm, they've just rescued someone training for a triathlon according to Sky.

The police knew they were looking for a LHD vehicle as April was seen to get into the vehicle on the drivers side

Its all in the thread would only take you 30 mins to read and catch up
I might have misunderstood the situation, but wasn't the LHD theory taken up on the word of some small children who said April climbed into the drivers side? What if the small children were mistaken? Or what if they were right, but the girl climbed into the drivers side of a RIGHT hand drive vehicle?
They also said that it was a van. Maybe small children would describe a land rover as a van, but maybe it really WAS a van.

It just seems very strange that no DNA evidence has been found in this blokes land rover

Here's some news for you. The police will not be sharing every single scrap and fact of the investigation with Joe Q.

Wow, just wow. I really despair at some of the inhabitants of this country.
Yet another reason I'll never use it. I don't think its right that people who murder kids get bed and board for life but equally I don't understand how these idiots can't split arrested on suspicion of and charged with.

Pre bookface you'd have a few opinions voiced in the media, now half brained barely literate imbeciles can have their fill of hearing half a story and spew their moronic utterings into a sea of like minded mongs and gain a sense of pride from assuming they're right.

In cases like this I don't see why they don't pump the suspects full of truth drugs and see what they say. If it might mean finding the victin alive (if time allows) or even dead, it's got to be worth a go. If nothing is right, what difference would it make to a trial?

The girl looked so happy in the pictures. Truly heart breaking to think someone may have taken her life.

Possibily, but if they had found something I would think they would have disclosed it. In the absence of this it's safer to assume they haven't found anything than the other way around.

I doubt the Police would deny or confirm either way,certain things are never publicly declared until a trial,should one go ahead.

Listening to the news this evening,it was said that one of the reasons that Bridger had been arrested for suspicion of murder, was because of forensic evidence gained,however where that evidence came from was not disclosed.
It could well have came from the landrover.

<insert not sure if serious image>

Why would the police disclose any evidence? The only people the police should disclose any evidence to is perhaps her family and to the cps.

Maybe your right, who knows?

I'm just starting to get a little uncomfortable with this now just as I was with the Joanna Yates case when nearly everyone thought they had the right man and I was one of the few who didn't, based simply on that it didn't make sense. This also doesn't make sense on several levels, the main one being that if Bridger did it how could he even hope to get away with it as all reported 'suspicious movements' of his were conducted in broad daylight? If he did it then was certainly wasn't trying to be careful and yet there appears to be very little, if any, solid evidence.

That they have had to apply for several extentions to his detention would SUGGEST they don't have solid evidence otherwise they would have charged him earlier, and yet they still haven't charged him.

Why stop there? Why not water board them as well?

Chris Jeffries was arrested on suspicion of murder - and IIRC his detention was extended.

Just sayin, like.

One of the few? Most intelligent non-daily mail readers knew there was likely some doubt, no clear evidence, trial by media etc. Similar situation here. Very sad situation but media found him guilty before any facts are known. He might be guilty, it might be an accident etc

Because we live in a democracy? And truth drugs might have as many false positives as true positives. The brain is a complex place...

But yes, it is appalling, I'm just not sure how far injecting truth drugs into suspects takes us...
