Found child reunited with family

Found child reunited with family

Shortly after 8.30am this morning Police were contacted by an Aunty who had been caring for the four year old boy found wandering Takapuna streets about 4.00am in nappies.

The family had arrived in NZ at about 2-00am from Samoa and had gone to spend the remainder of the night at a North Shore address, the boy was put down to bed but wandered off unnoticed. Everyone had naturally slept-in after their late night arrival which is why it took so long for the family to notify police.

In the meantime he had enjoyed a brief stay with the authorities courtesy of the Children and Young Persons service.

He has been reunited with his family and Police thank the media for their kind assistance.

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>>
