Teenager Missing on North Shore

Teenager Missing on North Shore
New Zealand Police National News Release
4:07pm 18 August 2006

North Shore Police are appealing to the public throughout the North Island for assistance in locating the whereabouts of a teenage girl who has been reported missing from her home in Beachhaven.

Sharn [pro Shar-n] Joy REID aged 15 years, was last seen by her mother at the family residence on Saturday 22 July 2006. The most recent public sighting was in Mairangi Bay on Friday 28 July 2006. Since this time there have been no further sightings and Police enquiries to locate the girl are continuing.

"We are keeping an open mind as to her whereabouts. The girl is relatively streetwise," said North Shore Police Youth Aid Officer Constable Scott Norris.

"While we have no immediate concerns for her safety, she is only 15 years of age. We certainly want to be assured of her well being so that she can return home," he said.

"The girl also went missing in May and on this occasion she was found by Police in a popular Wellington bar talking to a group of new found friends. There is a possibility that she is again in the capital, or in a North Island location, including the North Shore," Constable Norris said.

Police have issued a description of the missing teenager.

When last seen wearing - Blue jeans, red cardigan, wide belt, purple tee-shirt, green sneakers and pink shoulder bag.

Gordon Campbell: On The New Pike River Agency (And The Air Strike Wing)

Much of the sympathy the public still feels for the families of the Pike River miners has been sustained by the sense that the previous government – let alone the mining company and the processes of receivership and litigation – has never dealt honestly, or fairly, with them.

Finally, yesterday’s announcement by the Ardern government that a new state agency will be set up to assess and plan the manned re-entry to the mine (on a set timetable) goes a long way to meeting the families’ remaining request: that they be enabled, if at all possible, to bury their loved ones.
