Wellington Police concerned for the welfare of car owner

Title: Wellington Police concerned for the welfare of car owner after crashed vehicle found

Wellington Police would like to hear from Blair COLEMAN or anyone that has seen him today.

At 8.30am this morning a member of the public has discovered a vehicle down a bank after what looked like a recent crash.

Emergency services attended the scene and discovered markings which looked like the driver has climbed up the bank after a crash.

A search was undertaken by Police with a Police dog but the driver couldn't be located.

Inquiries throughout the day with friends and family haven't been able to locate Blair COLEMAN as the registered owner of the vehicle and concerns are growing for him.

If he was the driver of the vehicle, it is likely he has suffered injuries as a result of the crash and may be in need of medical attention.

He has not presented at an emergency department and his friends and family have not heard from him since last night which is unusual for him.

If anyone has any information on his whereabouts, or can confirm he is safe, they are encouraged to contact Wellington Police as soon as possible on (04) 381 2000.

Information can also be provided anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

ENDS

[Update - 5:22: Vehicle Owner Located]
