Police Conclude Abduction is Likely

Police conclude abduction is likely and appeal for sightings of another car

Police investigating the disappearance of six-year old Coral Burrows are now
satisfied Coral is not within the perimeters of the area, which expert opinion indicates that Coral could have travelled unassisted.


Police are appealing for sightings of a vehicle similar in model and colour, in the Featherston, Greytown, Martinborough or South Wairarapa on Tuesday of last week between the hours of 12.30pm and 3.30pm.

"Having considered all of the information available, I am led to the inevitable conclusion that Coral has been abducted and taken from the immediate area by another person," said Inspector Drew, head of Operation Reef.

"The investigation focus is now on determining the identity of that person and the circumstances of the abduction."

Police are also appealing for sightings of a beige/fawn coloured Lada sedan in the Featherston, Greytown, Martinborough or South Wairarapa on Tuesday of last week between the hours of 12.30pm and 3.30pm.

"This will help us to confirm important movements on the day Coral went missing and is all part of standard practice in major investigations of this nature," said Mr Drew.

Mr Drew says police remain committed to finding Coral and determining the circumstances of her disappearance.

"We are still receiving a good number of calls through our freephone. The total now is around 660."

If people can help with information and sighting of the cars please contact us:
