No sign of missing German tramper

Search teams have spent the day in the Travers Saddle area of Nelson Lakes National Park searching for missing German tramper Christian Ulf Erik PREHN, aged 19.

The search has concentrated in the area the pack was found but searchers have found no trace of Mr PREHN. The helicopter and a dog team have returned to base and two ground teams are spending the night at the Travers Hut.

Search coordinator Senior Constable Dave Colville said the search would continue tomorrow, weather permitting.

He said several people who had been in the area have spoken with Police but so far none have had information about Mr PREHN's intentions.

Police would like to speak to a German woman called Angela Bähr who is believed to have spoken with Mr PREHN at one of the huts.

Anyone with information that may assist this search should call Nelson Police, Ph 03 546 3840.

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>>
