Hamilton Police searching for a Korean woman missing since her vehicle crashed into the Waikato River off a City bridge two weeks ago are appealing for landowners bordering the river to look out for suspicious objects in the water.
Officer in charge of the City’s Missing Persons Unit, Sergeant Craig Singer, says the search for 40-year-old Eunki Kim is continuing and included searches of the Waikato River by a Police boat over the weekend.
"As water levels fluctuate with the heavy rains over recent days we’re asking landowners to keep an eye out for any objects of concern and if they notice anything to contact Police.
"Another focus for our inquiry team is locating one of the original witnesses to the crash who had left before police attending the June 6 crash could interview him."
Craig says this person was described as a man aged about 40 who was driving a silver or white Mazda 323.
"We believe it was this person who flagged down the witness who reported seeing a person struggling in the water, if you are this person or know who he is Police would like to speak to you as we build up a clearer picture of events prior to and during the crash."
Anyone with information on the crash who hasn’t already spoken to Police is asked to contact Craig at the Hamilton Central Police Station on 07 858 6200.
Alternatively information can be left anonymously with Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
