Police are still "following lines of inquiry" into the disappearance of Shelly Crooks, who was last seen at Punakaiki nearly six weeks ago.

"Some information has come in from other parts of the country outside the West Coast, and this information is being assessed and followed up," detective sergeant Kirsten Norton of the Greymouth CIB said today.

The missing mother of four has not used her Eftpos card since she stayed at the Punakaiki campground on December 22. Ms Crooks was apparently heading to Opotiki in the Bay of Plenty to spend Christmas with her children but failed to arrive.

Police last week focused inquiries on the area from Punakaiki to Fox River, on the Coast Road.
