They followed the vehicle for five to 10 minutes before the pursuit was abandoned due to the fleeing vehicle's erratic driving.

It was last seen at the intersection of Great North Rd and Sabulite Rd.

Officers were tonight on the lookout for the vehicle and its three male occupants.

Anyone who spots the vehicle, a 2003 Mazda Familia station wagon registration FBC465, was asked to call 111 or to contact Henderson police on (09) 839 0600.
