The first male is described as Male Maori or Polynesian, short black hair, stocky build about 6 foot 1 tall, he has small tattoos on his arms and was wearing a black t shirt and black long trousers. Aged early to mid 20's
The second is described as Male European, 6 foot tall, blond or brown hair of medium length, he was wearing a white short sleeved top. Aged early to mid 20's.
