Statement from Coral and Paul Jones
It has been ten weeks since April, our beautiful little girl, was taken from us and the pain of our tragic loss doesn’t get any easier to bear.
With support, we are taking each day at a time. The Police family liaison team are helping us to get on with everyday life as well as keeping us up to date with the search plans and the work being done to prepare for the court case.
The messages and support from all over the world have continued and we remain grateful that we are in people’s thoughts and prayers. The empathy shown towards us by not only local people but those from afar has shown us that people really do come together during difficult times.
We are extremely grateful to Dyfed Powys Police for their continued efforts to find April. The dedication and determination shown by the search teams who have come from all over the UK has been truly amazing. We take comfort to think that they will be returning to their families to earn a well deserved rest over the Christmas and New Year period.
We understand that Christmas will be a particularly difficult time without April being amongst us but as parents of Harley and Jazmin we will obviously acknowledge the festive season as best as we can. We sincerely hope that families around the world will enjoy a peaceful and loving Christmas.
We would like to thank people for affording us privacy as a family, in particular the media. We realise that this is a big news story, but to us it is our life, and we are coming to terms with the fact that our baby girl has been taken from us.
