The Armed Offenders Squad were called to a street in Wainuiomata this afternoon to respond to a report of a suspected kidnapping.

Squad members and police dogs arrived at the Moohan St property to carry out a search warrant in response to the complaint.

However the house was empty and further police inquiries determined the person concerned is not missing, officer in charge of the Wellington AOS Senior Sergeant Mark Davidson said.

Police will make further enquiries but the AOS were stood down and no arrests were made, he said.
