Have you seen Aaron?


Taranaki Police are concerned for the safety of 27-year-old Opunake man, Aaron Roigard who has been missing since Monday 2 June, 2014.

Aaron was last seen at about 1pm after he left a Waiteika Road address on foot following a disagreement with a family member. He took a cell phone with him but not his wallet or car keys.

Police were notified later that day by his family and a missing person investigation was launched.

Officer in charge of the investigation Detective Senior Sergeant Blair Burnett says officers have been speaking with Aaron's family and friends to ascertain where he may have gone.

"Officers are continuing to make inquires and today we have had 8 search teams searching parts of the Taranaki coastline, farmland, and several mountain huts with the assistance of an Iroquois helicopter. Unfortunately at this stage we have not found any indication of his whereabouts.

"Aaron's family is missing him terribly and we encourage anyone that may know of his whereabouts or has any other information to contact Police immediately," says Detective Senior Sergeant Burnett.

Aaron is described as being 176cm tall, of medium build with brown hair. He was wearing black clothing, including a beanie, a hooded jacket, trousers and boots at the time of his disappearance.

Aaron drives an older style Holden Commodore Saloon coloured a dark green/blue and police also want to speak to anyone that may have seen it in the Opunake area on Monday 2 June, 2014.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Chris Allemann (06) 213 9536. Alternatively information can be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Looks like you need to get the blurb yourself. Probably best to do that irrespective, actually.If David Cameron was the closest thing John Key had to a political mentor, their successors also share a whole lot in common.

Theresa May and Bill English were both propelled into the top jobs as the result of unexpected resignations, and without much in the way of credible competition from their colleagues.
