Serious concerns for missing woman

Serious concerns for missing woman

Police have serious concerns for a Rotorua woman who has now been missing for more than a week in circumstances that are completely out of character.

Despite a media appeal and extensive enquiries there have been no confirmed sightings of 51-year-old Michelle Hoffman–Tamm since she left her Phillip Street home around 6pm on Wednesday the 7th November 2012.

Michelle had spent the afternoon with a family member, briefly returned home then set off on her bike indicating to her partner that she was going to visit friends who lived locally. She never arrived and has made no contact with friends or family which is highly unusual.

Although she does take some medication she doesn't suffer from any life-threatening condition that gives immediate concern.

Detective Senior Sergeant Zane Smith said: "This is still very much a missing person inquiry but Michelle has now been missing for 8 days with no information that readily explains her sudden disappearance. For that reason we have to seriously consider the possibility that something more untoward may have happened to her.

Michelle is described as a female Caucasian, approximately 5 foot tall, of medium build. She currently has short dark hair. Her red mountain style bike remains outstanding.

If Michelle is safe and well somewhere she is urged to contact the Police. Anyone else who knows where Michelle is or has any information is asked to contact Rotorua Police on 07 349 9400. Alternatively information can be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

False Electoral Return: John Banks Sentenced To Community Work, Curfew

“The conviction of John Banks today is another sad chapter for John Banks and the ACT Party”, says Labour candidate for Epsom Michael Wood.

“Mr Banks was found guilty of electoral fraud in June. Regardless of what sentence is handed down, his reputation is in tatters. Sentencing is a matter for the court, and publicly deriding him further brings little benefit.”

“With the conviction confirmed, it is time for the ACT Party to step up to the mark and apologise to the people of Epsom. Mr Banks has suffered the consequences of his actions, but so far the ACT Party has gotten off scott-free” More>>
