Not on Front Page
News report yesterday said he had been located.
Steve, that is good news. Generally cycle tourists are perfectly safe iin NZ, but you just never know..... Hopefully h was just too busy enjoying ( or enduring , with all the rain) his ride, to have contacted family. I work on the theory of noncontact when I am away from home. If there is an emergency, the authorities will notify family , otherwise they know to presume all is well.
good to hear it
Hard to verify online; his mother's facebook page says he's been found: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100005468475452&fref=search&__tn__=%2Cd%2CP-R&eid=ARDV8X5MQnUMNFeBg9rT-ZhB5WuEEcf2-dX_TXg1lUWTnv-Oz7deNHEoRlX-RiPt-RDzK07bkY-nV8Tg
Although the NZ police website still lists him as missing - disturbing... But I think yes, he has been found.
