Helicopter called in to search for missing person
A person who was reported missing in Tauranga earlier this morning has been “found safe and well”.
SunLive received multiple messages on Facebook this morning from people wondering what the helicopter was doing circling over the Matua/Otumoetai area around 4am.
One resident says police were searching the area of Kulim and Fergusson parks, all the way up to the Caltex Service Station on Otumoetai Road.
People are saying the helicopter was so loud that there was “no chance of sleep with all that noise”.
SunLive contacted police to find out what was happening in the area this morning.
A police spokesperson say the Eagle helicopter was assisting to locate a person reported missing.
“They were found safe and well.”
