Police in Waikato are investigating the disappearance of 67-year-old Hamilton man, Frederick ‘Rick’ Hayward who has been missing since September, 2013.

Late afternoon on September 2nd, 2013 Rick left his Hamilton home intending on travelling to the family bach in Raglan. On the way, he stopped for a walk at the Karamu Track on Old Mountain Road.

A local has seen Rick’s car parked near the Karamu Track on Old Mountain Road and upon seeing it again in the same spot the following day, this person has contacted Police and a missing person enquiry began.

Police now believe that something sinister may have happened to Rick and are appealing for any information in relation to frequent users of Old Mountain Road in September 2013. Particularly if there was damage to any vehicles around this time.

If you have any information that can help in any way with this case, please contact Hamilton Police.
