West Coast police were scanning
the main highways today in search of a campervan that was
being steered by a young boy.
Constable Michael Tinnelly, of Greymouth police, said they
had several reports about a boy, aged eight to 10 years, seen
sitting on the lap of the driver and steering the van. The
last time it was spotted was at Kumara Junction.
"We are trying to find the van to have a chat to the driver
but have not yet located it," Mr Tinnelly said.
