Then the Dutch police released CCTV footage of the theft. On March 30, 2020, thieves broke into the museum and stole the painting.

In April 2021, the law enforcement officers managed to find the robber, who, according to the results of the investigation, was sentenced to 8 years in prison. The picture was found only in September 2023. It was reported that the work of the artist was returned to the detective Arthur Brand, who was engaged in the search, by an unknown man.
