Search For Blakie Clues

A team of Police entered a Christchurch property this morning in a search for evidence of Lisa Blakie.

Detective Senior Sergeant Peter Read says that a team of about 15 staff entered the property on Port Hills Road at about 7.30 this morning.

“We’ve got a team of forensic specialists including ESR, Special Search team and SOCCO staff, who will conduct a full forensic examination of the area to confirm that Lisa had been there between 2 – 6 February.”

The team is expected to be at the house for several days.

Mr Read says it is not appropriate to comment on what led police to the property.
