There were 29 police officers working full-time on the hunt for Madeleine McCann. Soon there will be four, the Metropolitan Police says.

The Mirror :

Scotland Yard has cut the number of officers investigating Maddie’s disappearance from 29 to just four.

Just four. Just…

The BBC :

The Met said the “vast majority” of the work in its inquiry into Madeleine’s disappearance had been completed. It said no conclusion had been reached but it was now following a “small number of focused lines of inquiry” which was why the team had been cut.

Four full-time officers on one case still sounds a lot, no?

Spokesman for the McCann family Clarence Mitchell says the the case into her disappearance is not drawing to a close. 

If only it were. We all want closure. The story foes on and on.

 

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, from the Met, said: “The Met was asked to take on this exceptional case as one of national interest.”

Less time was spent looking for Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction.

“We were happy to bring our expertise to bear only on the basis that it would not detract from the policing of London; and the Home Office have additionally funded the investigation above normal grants to the Met. That will continue at the reduced level.”
