Taken Child - Lower Hutt

19 September 2008


Taken Child - Lower Hutt.

Lower Hutt Police advise that the missing four year old child and unlawfully taken Subaru motor vehicle were located 10.45 pm this evening in the Lower Hutt suburb of Naenae.

"The child is unharmed and has been reunited with his parents" says Detective Senior Sergeant Ross Levy, Officer in Charge of the Lower Hutt CIB.

"The vehicle was located in Stanford Grove, Naenae by a resident who was alerted to the incident via an earlier media report. We are extremely grateful for the timely assistance from both the media and Stanford Grove resident. The locating of the vehicle and child in such a timely manner can be directly attributed to the media reports" says Detective Senior Sergeant LEVY.

"At this stage, no offender(s) for the unlawful taking of the vehicle have been located, however, enquires to identify the person(s) responsible are continuing. The vehicle will also be subject to forensic examination over the weekend."

"We are still unsure as to whether or not this is an opportunist unlawful taking where the offender(s) have not been aware of the child in the vehicle."
