Bush search un­der­taken, no new clues


Po­lice came up empty-handed af­ter search­ing a for­est area near Kin­loch in con­nec­tion with the mur­der of Scott John Henry.

The body of the 48-year-old was found at his prop­erty on Whanga­mata Road on Thurs­day, 20, July.

On Tues­day po­lice searched an area of the Pure­ora For­est near the ‘‘Cen­tre of the North Is­land’’ track said De­tec­tive Se­nior Sergeant John Wil­son, Bay of Plenty CIB.

Po­lice searched the ex­ten­sive ru­ral prop­erty, which in­cluded sev­eral hectares of bush.

There were as­sisted by search and res­cue spe­cial­ists from Taupo and Ro­torua.

The search on Tues­day revealed noth­ing fur­ther of in­ter­est to add to what has pre­vi­ously been found at this lo­ca­tion, Wil­son said.

‘‘It was fo­cused on find­ing any ev­i­dence which can help us to de­ter­mine who killed Mr Henry, and why.’’

Wil­son said po­lice wanted to hear from truck driv­ers who may have dash cam footage that could as­sist in the in­quiry.

Po­lice con­tinue to welcome any in­for­ma­tion which will as­sist in­ves­ti­ga­tors.
