To date number of people identified as being in the area and spoken to as a result of information received from the community.

The boy is still in Timaru Hospital in a comfortable condition however at this stage it has not been possible to speak to him about his ordeal.

The Timaru Police are still seeking witnesses who may have been in the Selwyn Street area between Oceanview Heights School and Hobbs Street between 3.00pm and the time he was located at 4.20pm.

We are also interested in hearing from anyone who was in the vicinity of Holme Station Bridge during the same period of time.

Even if you don't believe you saw anything we are still wanting to know who and what vehicles were in the area during that time.

The young boy is aged 9 years and was wearing an Oceanview Heights School uniform which consists of a dark blue polar fleece, dark blue shorts and a teal green polo shirt.

He is described as being of dark complexion, slim build, approximately 30 kg's with dark hair.  Whilst aged 9, he is considered small for his age and his height is more like that of a 6 or 7 year old.
