Police are hunting for a man, potentially armed and wanted for seriously assaulting his partner.

Daniel Minogue, 31, was last seen in Nelson on October 5 but has ties to the Bay of Plenty District, in particular Taupo, Turangi and Rotorua.

He is described as Maori, approximately 176cm tall with dark hair.

Minogue is a known drug user and is believed to have a firearm in his possession so should not be approached, a police spokeswoman says.

He drives a distinctive black BMW but could have access to other vehicles, including a grey 2-door Nissan Pulsar.

It is also possible he was travelling with a male associate.

Any sightings of Minogue should be reported immediately to police and anyone who had any knowledge of his whereabouts are also asked to contact the nearest police station.
