Police hunt for boy

A 7-year-old Tahatai Coast School boy sparked a police hunt when he took too long to come home from school.

Tauranga police acting Senior Sergeant Steve Hindmarsh said a large number of police searched the Papamoa beach area for the boy when he was reported missing at 6.12pm yesterday.

It's believed the boy had gone to a friend's house and returned home at 6.56pm.
