The G7 summit saw Bavaria put out a huge police operation to protect world leaders. But it resulted in a rather unusual operation afterwards - tracking down a police officer in the name of love.

The hunt was started by the Bavarian police union after the mother of a sixteen year-old girl got in touch with them. The girl had met a police officer who was stationed outside her house during the political summit but she hadn't come away with his phone number.

The mother told the police her daughter was head-over-heels in love and asked if they could help track down the officer in question.

So the Bavarian police set out on a “manhunt”, by posting about on their Facebook page asking the officer to get in touch. The post which was clicked on over 30,000 times, reports T-Online.

A few hours later the police called off the search. The officer from Wuppertal in North Rhine-Westphalia had been found. Unfortunately though there was no happy ending to the story. He was already taken.

On the plus side he is now friends with the young woman on Facebook. What his girlfriend has to say about this is not known.
