The Daily Express describes what it calls the "desperate search" for April Jones , the girl missing in Mid-Wales.
The volunteers who joined the search despite torrential rain are described by the Daily Mail as "an extraordinary mixture of ordinary people".
The Times speaks of a "frantic hunt" along the river.
Many papers believe Ed Miliband enjoyed something of a triumph with his Labour conference speech on Tuesday.
The Daily Express believes it was a miraculous transformation "from toothy oddball to slick political performer in the Blair mould".
Matthew Engel of the Financial Times views the performance as "an initiation ritual" like "fire-walking."
The Sun is less convinced, reminding its readers of the old adage "they say empty vessels make the most noise".
The Daily Star thinks Mr Miliband still has his work cut out, "convincing voters that he has what it takes to be prime minister".
There were few specifics, admits the Guardian, but it says "this is not yet the moment for details".
One in five people think parsnips grow on branches while others believe melons come from under the ground.
