Search finds no trace of missing tramper

Seven search teams have spent a third day searching for missing tramper Alistair Levy in Kahurangi National Park and have found no trace of him.

Search coordinator Sergeant Mike Fitzsimons said Police held grave concerns for Mr Levy’s welfare given the time that had elapsed since he was last heard from and the challenging terrain in the area.

Searchers will tonight have completed their taskings in all of the areas Mr Levy is believed to have been in or near. All searchers will be brought in from the field tonight.

Sergeant Fitzsimons said a team of 13 cavers who have been in communication with Police will be in the Bulmer area tomorrow.

“They will be in touch if they come across anything of interest.”

A further aerial search is planned for tomorrow, after which options will be reassessed.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
