Search for missing Rotorua man to resume

1 min read

Please attribute to Constable John Fredericksen, Rotorua Police SAR:

Police will recommence the search for missing Rotorua man Nigel Peterson after a Behavioural Science Profile was carried out.

It has been 167 days since 33-year-old Nigel went missing in Rotorua.

This new information regarding Nigel’s possible behaviour around the time he went missing has given Rotorua Police a better understanding of his potential movements and areas he may have gone.

As a result, Police, family members and LandSAR personnel will spend the coming week planning. Then on the 11th, 12th and 13th of May teams will search both new, and already covered areas, in the hope of finding some evidence to indicate what happened to Nigel. 

The goal is to provide some closure for the family who are still hopeful that Nigel can be located and returned to them.

Police would still like to hear from anyone who believes they may have seen Nigel in and around Rotorua since his disappearance on 17 November 2017 and the week following.

People can ring Rotorua Police on 07 348 0099, send a private message to the BOP Police Facebook page or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
