Is Operation Grange still active?

I was under the impression OG had been stopped and the investigation was under the banner of the MPS.

What is the truth?
What are you doing to find Madeleine?

I believe everything. And l believe nothing.
I suspect everyone. And l suspect no one.
I gather the facts, examine the clues... and before   you know it, the case is solved!"

Or maybe not -   Into year 13 and still no solution.

It will be seen for sure in the future whether there will be any special funding requested.

It should be labelled funding outwith the normal remits of the MPS, nothing particularly special about it.

Its not the only investigation that get other funding, I posted about it some time ago.
Although the HO label it has special funding.

Yeah , I don't think they are physically 'hunting' for MBM at all. probably the case file is still live. Waitng on a shelf  to be brought put as some loon claims she is being sent by China to the darker side of the moon as an experiment...

Now that we are at the stage where the HO is not openly funding OG, I fancy there will be no more funding announcements and OG will just fade into the background - officially still open, but little more than a liaison unit with Portugal.

Some one with a knowledge of Grange who is also working on other cases,makes sense.

The case will be actively investigated for as long as there is something to be investigated; which appears to be the situation as far as Madeleine's case is concerned.

If or when that situation changes and all active lines if inquiry are exhausted I believe we will know about it ... as has happened in Claudia Lawrence's case for example.

Claudia Lawrence enquiry moves to reactive phase
Assistant Chief Constable Paul Kennedy, who attended the family meeting, said: “Step by step, we have explained to Claudia’s family the extensive work the review team has conducted in an attempt to determine precisely what happened to Claudia.

“The team has reviewed the entirety of the initial investigation into Claudia’s disappearance in 2009, and as a result, has identified many new lines of enquiry which have been pursued with vigour and determination.

“Despite their exhaustive efforts, the support of national experts, the application of the very latest forensic techniques to exhibits recovered many years ago, and despite the team tracing and speaking to many people who did not come forward in the first enquiry, we have sadly not been able to find that crucial piece of information.

The remit of Operation Grange is to investigate ...  "(as if the abduction occurred in the UK)"
