Prayers were said for Zoe Evans throughout Warminster, Wiltshire yesterday as police continued a massive search for the missing nine- year-old, who is now feared murdered.

In a poignant tribute at St John's, two of Zoe's fellow Brownies, lit a candle in memory of their friend, who disappeared eight days ago.

The Rector, the Rev Dennis Brett, said the close-knit community was in a state of shock.

Detectives yesterday spent a third day questioning a couple who were arrested on Friday. Police have refused to name the pair, despite widespread reports that they are Zoe's mother and step-father, Paula Evans, 28, and Miles Evans, a 23-year-old soldier. Detectives are still awaiting the results of DNA tests on bloodstained clothing which they believe belongs to Zoe.
