I appreciate that you want all the cases of missing children to be investigated thoroughly as do I.
However as the amount of money spenton thisinvestigation gives you causefor concernI well repeat my question to you.
Should the investigation by NSY never have been instigatedand therefore no money spent.
Should the investigation ceased when half of the money had been spent.
Should it have been halted this year before the extra money was added.
The case should be investigated as should others, and it has.
I have no objection to that.
Perhaps we should ask John on what criterion are used in determining the length of an investigation.
I have no problem with a case being shelved, pending further information, which could then be re-opened.However, as we know, police forces have ever diminishing resources, and what is clear at the moment, is that the case hasn't achieved it's objectives.
