Mark Bridger, April Jones Murder Suspect, Attended Parents' Evening Hours Before Disappearance

Posted: Updated:

Murder suspect Mark Bridger attended the same school parents' evening as April Jones's mother and father just hours before the five-year-old disappeared.

The 46-year-old was seen at Ysgol Gynradd Machynlleth, where two of his children are pupils.

A Powys County Council spokesman said: "I can confirm that Mr Bridger attended a parents' evening on 1 October."

Sources close to Mr and Mrs Jones said the couple had been given a "glowing report" about their daughter's progress - and had allowed her some extra play time when they returned home as a treat.

Just a few yards from her home, police said April was seen willingly getting into a large vehicle at around 7pm.
