Search on for missing teenager
POLICE have a search under way on a farm in the Mata Road area inland from Tokomaru Bay for 19-year-old Caleb Glasier who has not been seen or heard from for nine days.
Police were advised of the youth's disappearance by family members on Monday.
“We had a team of police go into the area this morning, and we will scale up the search tomorrow using Search and Rescue volunteers and others,” said search spokesman Sergeant Greg Lexmond. “The Trust Tairawhiti rescue helicopter will also be brought in tomorrow.
“The family have told us that Caleb has gone off on his own in the past, but not for this long, and they have concerns for his safety.”
Sgt Lexmond said it was believed the missing teen was somewhere on the farm, called Bremner Station, which is 28 kilometres inland off State Highway 35.
“But he could have gone off somewhere else.
“At this stage we are concentrating our search on the station.”
Anyone with information about Caleb's whereabouts has been asked to contact Gisborne Police.
