A search for a Rangitikei man who has been missing for nearly
a week has been suspended.
Stephen Walker was last seen at his Bulls home last Wednesday
Searchers had completed a thorough search of the area, a
police spokeswoman said today.
They had now pulled back from the search today until police
had further information relating to Mr Walker's whereabouts.
‘‘We are also working closely with his family to ascertain
his day to day patterns and what frame of mind he was in when
he was last seen," she said.
The 25-year-old is the brother of Pete and Andy Walker, fan
favourites on TV3's The Block NZ television show, which
screened last year.
A blue Suzuki TF125 farm motorbike that Mr Walker was
believed to be travelling on was found on Makoura Rd, Apiti.
Officer in charge of the search Sergeant Andy Brooke earlier
said police were concerned for his welfare.
Mr Walker is Caucasian, of medium build, 180cm tall and has
short brown hair. He was last seen wearing a green Swandri, a
green hoodie, track pants and gumboots.
