Footprints mystery solved

Police offered support and assistance to a young woman who called emergency services early this morning over a suspicious pair of footprints, which turned out to be her own.

Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen, of Dunedin, said officers were called to a property in George St when a woman arrived home at 1.20am after a function and discovered a pair of footprints in her doorway.

They were made of a salt-like material, he said.

After investigating the scene and performing a security check, police determined that the footprints were her own.
