They gave up on this search too quickly.


The search has not been given up. They will continue to find bodies, but they have exhausted the opportunities to find those bodies that are readily accessible. So, an active body search is not productive. The body search had three phases. Now, as people return to open places that have been locked up and as debris is cleaned up there will be bodies found and they will be dealt with by the company hired to do so. This is only to be expected. Everything that can be searched has been searched. Now the clean-up must begin.
