Search for mum, two years on
The husband of an Alexandra woman who disappeared into thin air two years ago is hopeful a fresh search will bring closure for his family.
Denise Potter left her daughter’s Dunedin home without her phone, purse and with only the clothes she was wearing, minus any shoes.
Extensive searches failed to find the 54-year-old who has not been seen since she disappeared from the garden of the Carroll St home on March 30, 2015, about 12.45pm. Now police are planning to revisit that search in the hope of bringing closure for her family.
A large search and rescue exercise will take place over the weekend of November 10, and will include pamphlet drops and door knocks around the city rise area.
Her husband Steve Potter welcomed the move, saying ’’anything that will help has to be beneficial’’.
However not knowing the scenario behind her disappearance ’’won’t ever go away’’.
Compounding that loss was the almost two years it took for the coroner to look into the case.
A 2017 coroner’s report found Potter ‘‘died at a place unknown’’ around March 30, 2015’’.
Alexandra’s Regan Hunter is touring with Weber Bros Circus as an FMX rider.
