Police Numbers Stepped Up In Missing Woman Inquiry

Police Numbers Stepped Up In Missing Woman Inquiry


Police have stepped up their staff numbers for the inquiry into missing Rawene woman Barbara Moka.

The 32-year-old woman was last seen on Sunday June 9 and had attended a Tangi at the Te Piiti Marae, Omanaia (near Rawene).

Barbara and her partner, aged 43 years, have reportedly been involved in a motor vehicle crash in the early hours of Sunday, about 1am, not far from the marae.
Police have been told that they have returned to the marae following the crash.

There are now 20 staff working on the case and Police say it is looking more likely that there has been foul play involved in her disappearance.

Inquiry head Detective Senior Sergeant Rhys Johnston says Police are still keen to hear from anyone who attended the tangi and may have still been there after midnight on Saturday June 8.

Barbara is 1.5m tall of slim build with black shoulder length hair that is normally tied up in a pony tail.

She has two tattoos on her neck - one is a Japanese symbol, the other an Aquarius star sign.

Anyone with relevant information can contact the Kaikohe Police on 09 405 2960 or CrimeStoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
