A reminder from Police for trampers and walkers to be prepared

Attributable to Sergeant Ian Martin, Search and Rescue Co-ordinator, Invercargill:

As people prepare to get away and into the outdoors ahead of Labour Weekend, Police are reminding people to be prepared and notify people of their plans.

A 54-year-old Wellington man was located safe and well in a hut on the Milford Track yesterday (Monday) evening, after not returning to his car parked on Milford Road for some days.

Police received a call from contractors on Sunday evening concerned that no one had returned to the car.
