1 min read

A Search and Rescue Operation is underway for a male and female last seen entering bush yesterday in the south west Waitakere Ranges at Whatipu.

The female was reported missing three days ago and her family has expressed concerns for her safety.

A vehicle used by the pair was located in the car park at Whatipu by a ranger this afternoon. Due to the apparent presence of some chemicals and wires round the vehicle an IED disposal team from the NZ Army has been called to ensure the vehicle is safe.

Eagle has also completed a check of the area and a land search is now underway.
