Unexplained Disappearance Puzzles Police

Unexplained Disappearance Puzzles Police

The unexplained disappearance of an Asian female who left her Torbay home early on Monday evening and has not been sighted since is puzzling Police.

Police believe that Bin CHEN aged 44 years left her home at about 5.30pm on Monday 5 November 2012. When she failed to return as expected she was reported missing by her partner.

Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Megan Goldie is leading the investigation into the missing woman. She says “Cissy” CHEN regularly walks for an hour each day in the area of Long Bay Regional Park which is close to her home.

“We are keeping an open mind as to where she went on Monday evening but with no sightings reported so far, our concern for her welfare and well being is certainly mounting. The area and focus of our search has been extended.”

“We need to hear from any residents living in the Long Bay, Waiake and Torbay area who were out walking between 5.30pm and 10.00pm on Monday evening. Any recent sightings of “Cissy” will significantly help our existing enquiries.”

“A Police search and rescue team is canvassing an area north of Long Bay. The police helicopter Eagle made several sweeps over the Long Bay Regional Park location yesterday and Deodar also carried out a search along the coastline. Further sweeps are being planned,” Megan Goldie said.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Bin CHEN whose English name is “Cissy” is urged to call the North Shore Police on (09) 477 5207 or call Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
