Search following PLB activation, Coromandel Peninsula

1 min read

Police and LandSAR are conducting a search operation inland from Amodeo Bay in the Coromandel Peninsula after a Personal Locator Beacon PLB was activated yesterday.

The PLB is unregistered, and Police are working to determine if it is an injured person, or it was lost and self-activated.

If anyone knows of someone going into the Amodeo Bay area who has not returned, please contact 105 and quote event number P056115227. 

If you own a PLB or EPIRB you can register it for free through the RCCNZ website or

Registration assists emergency services and saves considerable time and costs for searches.
