Search still on for missing constable

The constable was with two other officers, including the late sergeant Willie Marita, in the FOX 01 (zero-one) LandCruiser when they were caught in the overflowing flood waters at the Tapo Fjord crossing around 7 that evening.

The missing constable and another officer had both accompanied their senior ranked officer to Negeri in Tapo to attend to a reported hold up.

The Fox 01 vehicle was caught in the overflowing river caused by the heavy downpour on Monday night.
