Missing person update – Ōpōtiki

Police continue to appeal for help from the public to locate 50-year-old
Jason Butler.

Jason was last seen in the Omaio area on Saturday 23 October and his family
are concerned for his welfare.

He is about 175cm tall and of medium build.

Police are keeping an open mind as to Jason's whereabouts. We are aware that
at some stage he has gone into the bush near the Haparapara River, however it
is a possibility that he has come out of the bush by now.

Police would like to hear from anyone who may be able to provide information
to confirm this.

Jason does not have access to a vehicle so if he has left the area it is
likely he has received a ride from someone.

Police urge anyone who may have seen Jason or have any information on his
whereabouts to call 105, referencing job number P048415575.

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal.
