A missing British tourist, overdue on the Te Araroa Trail
between Nelson Lakes and Boyle River, continues to concern
A helicopter was to search the Nelson Lakes area today for
Andrew Ian Wyatt, aged 41, of Cornwall, who arrived in New
Zealand in November.
He was last seen by a tramper at Blue Lake in Nelson Lakes
National Park on or about December 14.
He was intending to tramp to the Boyle Village in the Lewis
Pass, where he was due to pick up a food package on December
16, but he never arrived.
His intention was to then carry onto Arthurs Pass where he
had another food parcel to collect, police said.
Search coordinators say he may have now left the area where
he was thought to be intending to tramp.
Police are appealing for Mr Wyatt to contact them, or for
anyone who has information on his whereabouts to contact
police as soon as possible.
Police would also like to speak to anyone who has been
tramping in the area.
