Help Counties Manukau Police find 78 year old Mr Taufa

Counties Manukau Police are concerned about the whereabouts of Mr Taufa. Hateni Taufa is a 78 year old Tongan male who went missing yesterday at around 7.30am in Otahuhu.

Mr Taufa is approximately 170cm tall and of medium build with grey hair. He has no known illnesses and is not believed to be taking medication. His family have advised Police that he is becoming more forgetful, and that it is likely he may be suffering from the early stages of dementia.

Sergeant Simon Walker said, “Mr Taufa was last seen by his daughter at approximately 7.30am on Tuesday 9 April. She dropped him off at the intersection of Hutton Street and High Street in Otahuhu.”

Hateni was wearing a brown zip up jacket with Navy Blue Sleeves, brown trousers and black puma shoes.

It is believed that Taufa was going to the High Street Dairy to buy cigarettes and was going to walk home to Monterey Place once he had done this. Neighbours believe they sighted Hateni shortly after 0730hrs on Fairburn Road, Otahuhu however he never arrived at his home address.
“Taufa has recently moved to the Otahuhu area after previously living in Otara and may not be familiar with the area. He may attempt to make his way back to Otara.”

“So far all attempts to locate Taufa have so far been unsuccessful,” said Sergeant Walker.

Attached is a photo of Mr Taufa. The jacket worn in this photo is the jacket he was last seen wearing.

If you have any information about the whereabouts of Mr Taufa please call Counties Manukau Police immediately on 09 259 1254 or 0278915799.

As usual, Prime Minister John Key has busily tried to distance himself from the political fallout, even though he happens to be the main beneficiary of the Remuneration Authority’s generosity. Finance Minister Bill English says with a straight face that it would actually be very hard to give the money back...

Even if it were true, it would actually be very easy for English and any other guilty colleagues, to give the extra money away. There are any number of food banks or homeless shelters who would be able to put the money to good use. More>>
