Missing trio may be in Arthur's Pass or West Coast area

Christchurch Police searching for two absconded parolees and an associate believe the three men may be in the Arthur's Pass or West Coast area.

Police are urgently appealing for any information or sightings of the men since Saturday.

Police say a white vehicle was found abandoned on a back road at Klondyke Corner, near Arthur's Pass, on Saturday. It was confirmed this morning as being a Honda Civic associated with one of the men, Jamie Campbell.

Detective Inspector Tom Fitzgerald says the three men may still be in the Arthur's Pass area, or may have continued towards the West Coast, where they are known to have connections.

"We are urgently seeking assistance from the public and want to hear from anyone in the area who may have seen these men, or anyone matching their descriptions," he says.

"They may still be travelling, or they may have gone to ground. Someone may have seen them in a vehicle or in and around Arthur's Pass at some stage since late last week.

"It's vital that anyone who has seen these men, or any other unusual or suspicious activity, comes forward to Police urgently."

Detective Inspector Fitzgerald says Police are now conducting extensive enquiries in the Arthur's Pass area, and West Coast Police are also assisting with enquiries.

Ivan Andrew Campbell, aged 46, and Jaydon Galland, aged 18, absconded from the Salisbury Foundation early on Wednesday morning [7 November].

Ivan Campbell is described as a Caucasian, 177cm (approx 5ft 10in) tall, and of medium-thin build. He has extensive tattoos on his face, neck, and arms. Galland is described as Caucasian, 177cm (approx 5ft 10in) tall, of medium build, with tattoos on his neck.

Their associate goes by the name of Jamie Campbell, and is also known as Alexander Paul Jones. He is 25 years old and is described as a male Caucasian, tall, of slim to medium build with dark hair and a beard.

Any sightings of the men should be reported urgently to Police by phoning 111, or Christchurch police on (03) 3637400. Alternatively, to provide information anonymously contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
