Abandoned tramping pack puzzles Police SAR

LSAR Abandoned tramping pack puzzles Police SAR

"Wellington Police Search and Rescue Squad are mystified by an abandoned tramping pack they have recovered in the Tararua Forest Park.

Sergeant Jo Holden, SAR coordinator, says the maroon coloured MacPac brand pack containing a sleeping bag, orange pack liner, some food, clothing and cooking equipment and other items was found on the Block XVI track above the Tauherenikau River.

"Ownership of the pack is a real puzzle as we're unaware of anyone reported overdue in the area," she says. "Weather conditions in the Tararuas over the past fortnight have at times been extreme. This gives us concerns for the welfare of anyone who may be lost or requiring help.

"We're very keen to hear from anyone who recognises the pack or from people who haven't heard from friends or family members who intended tramping in the area in recent weeks."
