A car has gone over the side of the Paekakariki Hill Rd but the driver has disappeared.
The steep and winding road goes between the Kapiti town of Paekakariki and the Porirua town of Pauatahanui.
When emergency services got to the scene about 3.30pm today there was nobody with the car.
The car, which had not been reported stolen, was thought to have gone down the bank today, police said.
Paraparaumu fire officers said the scene had been cleared.
