A Land Search and Rescue team have located Sheree Tuahuru, who was reported missing in the north end of the Kaimai Ranges, safe and well.

Sheree was located near the Waitawheta Hut.

Tauranga Police would like to thank the Land Search & Rescue teams and the AREC (Amateur Radio Emergency Communication) Group, for their assistance.

Sergeant Craig Madden of the Police SAR stated the successful outcome of this search was due to the fact the missing party had left her trip intentions with family.

"Anyone entering the bush needed to make sure they don't exceed their own capabilities and not to rely on maps printed off the internet or a cell phone as a means of navigation," says Sergeant Craig.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
