This weekend, a German teenager went missing when she went swimming with her father and sister. She was probably dragged along by a strong current, according to Dutch media.
On Sunday, the Royal Dutch Rescue Company (KNRM), which was looking for the girl, already assumed she had not survived.
On Wednesday, the rescue service stopped their official search after a final search yielded no results, according to the police, but several fishermen continued their search for the girl.
