The search for a family last seen in a distressed state in Cambridge yesterday afternoon has been successfully concluded with the family's vehicle stopped in the Hawkes Bay early last night.
Eastern Waikato Area Commander, Inspector Dana McDonald, said the navy blue Toyota Surf the family of four had been travelling in was stopped by Police in Napier this evening shortly before 7pm.
"Waikato staff are currently liaising with our Eastern District colleagues but at this stage the important thing is all members of the family have been accounted for safe and well.
"A considerable number of Police from across the Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Northern Communications Centre and now Eastern District have been involved in the search for the family and I would just like to acknowledge their efforts."
Mr McDonald said he would also like to acknowledge all the members of the public, who through the media, were made aware of the situation and did their up-most to assist our enquiries, thank you to you all.
