(Was missing now found)
I am not posting this simply out of concern for James – I’m a little staggered at the abysmal response.
Firstly the Police media report is a little blasé about a missing male, and I would question whether the later Stuff report was generated by a journalist or by his family contacting the media.
This man is on his way to work, running late, gets a warning for speeding in Bulls and doesn’t make it to work in Wellington later that evening and is known to have left his cell phone behind in Rotorua.
36 hours later the best we can do is leave this to a few relatives mounting road side searches on possible routes he could have taken.
Given the circumstances I’m reading below I am wondering what the hell we own air force helicopters for (that are sitting a few kilometres away from bulls) or why we have search and rescue teams.
Is this any different to a climber stuck up Mt Taranaki or a German tourist lost in the bush?
