Safe and well
Two brothers, aged 9 and 11, who spent a night away from home last week, were found safe and well on Thursday afternoon. Police were becoming concerned for the pair, who had disappeared from Karetu about 8pm on Wednesday after arguing with their grandparents. Extensive police inquiries failed to find them, but they were spotted by a relative in Kawakawa on Thursday afternoon. They were taken home, but police were not notified of their safe return for almost two hours. Police were planning to have a chat with the boys and their grandmother.
