Guam – FBI pulls out off-island staff, dog from missing girls case on Saipan.
Fifteen FBI staff and expert tracking dog Pohaku are leaving Saipan after their extensive search for missing sisters Faloma and Maleina Luhk proved futile.
With the FBI agents, support staff, and Pohaku set to go back to their home base in Honolulu, Hawaii, the FBI agents assigned in Guam and Saipan as well as local police would be left to handle the disappearance of 10-year-old Faloma and 9-year-old Maleina.
As this developed, the Department of Public Safety will also move the Incident Command Post in Kagman, which coordinated the search for the missing sisters, to the DPS main headquarters in Susupe.
DPS starting today will also assign police officers to their normal shift. Police officers assigned in the search also were assured that they will be paid their overtimes wages, which reportedly has amounted to $500,000.
Today marks the fourth week since the Luhk sisters were reportedly last seen leaving their house in As Teo.
