Brother joins hunt for sis­ter

Central Leader - - Front Page - By Janie Smith

A man who hasn’t seen his sis­ter for 13 years is now des­per­ately try­ing to find her, af­ter dis­cov­er­ing she’s gone miss­ing.

Daniel Love is help­ing to search for his younger sis­ter Shoshone Anne-Marie Love, 18, who only ar­rived in Auck­land with her care­giver last Thurs­day and went miss­ing the next day.

Shoshone has the in­tel­lec­tual age of a seven-year-old and left the Avon­dale house where she was stay­ing without any per­sonal pos­ses­sions, money or any means of con­tact­ing her fam­ily.

Po­lice spokes­woman Noreen He­garty says there are se­ri­ous con­cerns for her safety and well-be­ing.

Daniel says the pair were split up when they were put into foster care 13 years ago and his sis­ter was liv­ing in Welling­ton and Christ-church while he stayed in Auck­land.

He didn’t even know she’d come to Auck­land un­til the po­lice called to say she’d gone miss­ing.

“I think she wanted to come to Auck­land be­cause she wanted to see me.

“I’m wor­ried about her and re­ally miss her and want to see her.”

The mu­sic pro­ducer has cut back on his work so he can help search for Shoshone and has put the alert out through so­cial net­work­ing web­sites Bebo and Face­book, as well as email­ing friends and con­tacts.

He has also given out pho­to­graphs in case some­one recog­nises her.

“A lot of peo­ple are sup­port­ing me at the mo­ment. I don’t know why she would do that.”

Shoshone left the Avon­dale ad­dress in the early hours of the morn­ing and doesn’t know her way around Auck­land.

She is Maori, 1.5 me­tres tall with a solid build and brown medium-length hair with a blonde fringe.

When she was last seen she was wear­ing grey checked pants, a white sin­glet and a grey zipped hoodie with a red pat­tern on the back and a front panel.

She was bare­foot when she left the Avon­dale ad­dress.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on Shoshone’s where­abouts can con­tact con­sta­ble Ju­lia Bix­ley at the Avon­dale en­quiry sec­tion on 820-5701 or 027-2434214.
