Hundreds of people turned out today to pay their respects at an emotional service for missing five-year-old April Jones.
A procession of more than 700 people walked slowly through the Welsh town of Machynlleth, as normal life came to a standstill.
Hundreds gathered at the Bryn-y-Gog estate, where April was abducted on Monday evening.
With crowds wearing pink ribbons symbolising the faith many still have that the girl remains alive, the procession moved in subdued silence through the town.
Roads along the route were closed off as the sombre gathering inched its way slowly to St Peter's Church at the heart of the mid-Wales market town.
Reverend Kathleen Rogers addressed the congregation, as she offered prayers for April's parents Coral, 40, and Paul, 44, who did not attend.
Reverend Rogers said that a service had also been held for the search workers at the local leisure centre this morning.
Bishop of Bangor, Reverend Andy John, said the tight-knit community had "touched the heart of people around the world".
April, who has cerebral palsy, was taken while playing near her home.
Former lifeguard Mark Bridger, 46, was charged yesterday with the abduction and murder of April.
Mr Bridger is also accused of perverting the course of justice and will appear before Aberystwyth Magistrates' Court tomorrow.
The five-year-old remains missing despite an intensive, ongoing search.
