The search for April Jones is focused on the area around Machynlleth in the United Kingdom.

U.K. police searching for April Jones are using unmanned aircraft to look for any trace of the five-year-old, missing since Oct. 1, and say the hunt could continue beyond Christmas.

Police Superintendent Ian John said unmanned aircraft systems, supplied by private companies and fitted with sonar equipment, are being used to try to pinpoint areas of recently disturbed earth. The equipment employed in the search also includes Global Positioning System-equipped vests for dog handlers that enable searchers to map exactly where they’ve been.

"We could still be here at Christmas or the new year,” said John. “Hopefully we will find April soon. We’re not going anywhere until we’ve done our job. We’re here for the long term if we need to be."
