Police are searching for a Masterton man accused of fraud after he failed to appear at court this morning.

A warrant has been issued for 41-year-old Alex Dittmer, a former Hutt Valley fireman.

He was due to appear at Masterton District Court in relation to fraud-related offending.

A declared bankrupt, Dittmer is wanted on a charge of obtaining money by deception, said Detective Sergeant Mike Smith of Wairarapa CIB.

Dittmer is believed to be in the Wairarapa or Wellington area and was actively avoiding police, Mr Smith said.

Anyone with information as to his current whereabouts can contact Masterton Police on 06 370 0300.

Alternatively, information can be passed on anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
