Missing teen story grips Germany as police call off search

The search of the 50-square-kilometre forest in Rieplos, Brandenburg, began on March 7th and involved more than 20 homicide officers and several police dogs. 

The search began after police received more than 1200 tip-offs from the general public about the area in response to an episode of ‘Aktenzeichen XY’ screened on ZDF which discussed details of the case. 

According to the Berliner Morgenpost, the search was unsuccessful and would not be continued, although plaster casts of tyre tracks were taken as evidence.
