Police appeal for sightings of missing Queenstown man

Please attribute to Sergeant Kate Pirovano:

Police are appealing for information on missing 63-year-old Queenstown man Alan Wilson who hasn’t been seen since around 2:30pm yesterday.

Alan rang a friend in good spirits while he was working on his boat at the Frankton Marina around 7:45pm last night.

He hasn’t been seen or heard from since and his vehicle remains at the marina.

Police and his family have serious concerns for Alan.

We are currently carrying out a search in the water and on the shoreline at Frankton Marina, as well as making enquiries in the wider area to try and locate him.

The dinghy Alan used to get to his boat has recently been located on the shoreline at Frankton Beach.

Police are asking people in the wider area to keep an eye out for Alan and to alert Police via 111 if they see him.

Anyone who may have seen him since 2:30pm yesterday is asked to ring Queenstown Police on 03 441 1600 to share their information.

When Alan was last seen he was wearing a grey polo shirt with a blue horizontal stripe across the chest about two inches wide, blue jeans and a black cap.

We also want to talk to anyone who may have seen his dinghy on the water since yesterday evening.

In other words, National appears determined not to learn from his past mistakes... More>>
