Police investigating the death of Rutger Hale are looking for
the driver of a vehicle towing a ''lake-going boat'' seen on
SH6 between Lake Hawea and Wanaka early last Thursday
Detective Sergeant Brian Cameron said the vehicle was heading
towards Lake Hawea and pulled over at the top of the
Maungawera Hill to let a white utility past, about 6.15am.
That put it ''pretty much'' in the vicinity where Mr Hale
died about 6.20am.
Det Sgt Cameron said police were still interested in hearing
from anyone who was on the road last Thursday, between 6am
And police are still interested in speaking to anyone driving
a white four-wheel-drive utility in the general area.
