Operation Lowry - 17 Oct 2008
New Zealand Police National News Release
3:05pm 17 October 2008
The search for Tisha Lowry continues as it is now four weeks since the last confirmed sighting of her.
Ms Lowry has now not been seen since Thursday 25 September by a family member around midday in the Hampshire Street area. Her family reported her missing on Sunday when they were concerned she had not attended her grandfather's birthday party. Tisha has not had any known contact with family or friends since that day.
DSS Virginia Le Bas says that information continues to be given to the inquiry team which all has to be checked out.
There was some media attention to an item which was located in the Avon River yesterday evening by a member of the public. MS Le Bas says that this has been checked out forensically and was not in any way related to the inquiry.
"We are very grateful to everyone who has contacted us with information however small and insignificant they think it might be," she says. "It all helps build up the picture of Tisha's life."
