"Search for Julia SPRINGER - day two update"

Kapiti-Mana Police are continuing a search operation in the hopes of finding any signs of where 53-year-old Julia SPRINGER is.

The search team of 12 has concentrated their search on the area around the coastal track around Pauatahanui Inlet today.

Her Blue Nissan Pulsar hatchback vehicle was located on Grays Road, Plimmerton near the entrance to the Pauatahanui Inlet at 2.30am yesterday morning and was still warm.

Ms SPRINGER, is described as European of medium build with brown shoulder length hair. At the time she was last seen on 11 August, she was wearing a, black puffer jacket, charcoal knitted cardigan, charcoal shirt, blue jeans, black boots and burgundy pink prescription glasses.

Detective Senior Sergeant Mike Oxnam says "Today our search efforts have focussed on the area surrounding her vehicle.

"The search has not revealed any items that would lead us to believe, at this stage, that her death is suspicious or an obvious sign she has left the area.

"There is a possibility she may have made her way into the water so we will be using the National Dive Squad to search the Inlet tomorrow.

"Around the inlet are several private boat houses, I would encourage anyone who owns one of these to check them for any damage or objects that look out of place and to contact Police straight away if they find anything."

Anyone with knowledge of the whereabouts of Julie Ann SPRINGER or who may have seen a female fitting her description are asked to contact Porirua Police on (04) 238 1400.
