Scotland Yard dogs trained to sniff out bodies yesterday joined a grim search for the missing schoolgirl Zoe Evans.

Senior detectives ordered a renewed sweep of open land near the nine- year-old's home on an army housing estate at Warminster, Wiltshire, after their decision to release her parents from custody, without charge. Zoe's mother Paula Evans, 28, and her step-father Miles Evans, 23, an army driver, were last night staying at a secret address.

Inspector Geoff Hicks, spokesman for Wiltshire police, said: "After no sign of Zoe in 10 days, we are obviously very pessimistic about finding her alive."
