Search for missing hunter continues

Search and Rescue teams from Wellington, Manuwatu, Horowhenua and the Wairarapa are continuing their search for missing hunter 28 year old Timothy Cleghorn today. Cleghorn, also known as Timothy Aicken, has not returned from a hunting trip after leaving his home Wednesday night.

It is believed that Mr Cleghorn has his dog with him, a tan bull mastiff with a chain around its neck. Mr Cleghorn is described as white, of skinny build and is believed to be wearing a white t-shirt and green camouflage pants. Today's search will continue through difficult terrain in the Akatarawa Saddle down through to the Waikanae Valley.

Ten teams are part of the search along with the assistance of a local 4WD club.

Searchers will also be door-knocking along Akatarawa Road to see if any residents have spotted him. Anyone with any information or sightings of Mr Cleghorn is asked to contact Wellington Police on (04) 381 2000 and ask to speak with Sergeant Anthony Harmer.
