Police looking for third man in kidnapping case

Counties Manukau Police investigating the kidnapping of Qing (Kelly) Zhao say they have received excellent information from the Chinese community and are now in a position to release details relating to a third person being sought in connection with the crime.

Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Neil Grimstone says the amount of information coming to the enquiry team from the Chinese community has been phenomenal and is part of the reason why the enquiry has progressed so well thus far.

"Another reason we have progressed well is because of the pressure we have been able to apply to those who have been involved - mainly through the media. I would like to say to this individual that it would be best if he comes forward before police have to come knocking on his door."

Mr Grimstone says the 0800 KIDNAP line will be manned this afternoon by a Chinese-speaking police officer and the Chinese community can be rest assured that any information given will be in the strictest confidence.

Two men, a 28 and 19-year-old, were arrested and charged last Thursday evening, in connection with the kidnapping. Police are still seeking two other people in connection with the crime.

The man's name police wish to locate is Wanzhe Gui, he is 29-years-old and 175cm tall.
