Edwards' associate also sought by Police

"Edwards' associate also sought by Police"

Police searching for 33 year-old Phillip Layton Edwards believe he is in the company of 25 year-old Maryanne Nahi [pic attached], a Maori of thin build who stands about 167cm tall.

Police have a warrant for her arrest which was issued by the Hastings District Court on June 19 for failing to answer District Court bail.

Maryanne Nahi is understood to have connections in Auckland, Kaipara and Wellsford and Police are appealing for any information about her whereabouts and, of course, that of Phillip Edwards.

Detective Inspector Scott Beard says if Maryanne Nahi is assisting Edwards to avoid arrest she could be liable for being an Accessory After the Fact.

"Our advice to both Maryanne and Phillip is to contact Police and arrange to meet with us so that we can talk about events of the past week."

Information can go to the Op Blair 0800 number, 0800 332 334 or Police on 111. Anonymous callers can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
