In the search for the young girl, the police have stopped a whole volunteer search in order to manage it as best they can. This, to me seems sensible as they have specialised officers conducting searches where they can't possibly have a volunteer getting in the way. Although they will use and manage teams of volunteers.
So cue questions from a reporter to volunteers:
Are you frustrated the police are holding you back?
Do you think she'll be found?
The first question seems to be looking for an angle of potential blame on the police. Just a reporter desperately trying to justify his presence there, but it's not good enough.

One of these day I really, really hope one of these dumb reporter's questions gets a suitably vigorous repsonse on live TV.
