The thief has a 40 km head start. It will take the police 2 hours to make up that distance. The bird will have flown 200 km during that time. Not sure what you mean with forward distance. If total distance = 200 km. If distance between start point and catching thief = 120 km. If only the distance when flying towards the thief = 160 km (distance to catch the thief + half the remaining distance the bird flew).
