Police are searching for a man who is "actively avoiding" them after he breached his parole conditions.
Forty-three-year-old James Wiki Henry has a history of dishonesty offending and is currently forbidden from driving.
However, police say he may be using a vehicle and could be anywhere in the central North Island, where he is believed to have connections.
"While there is no threat to the general public, he is considered dangerous and should not be approached," police said.
"Henry is aware police are looking for him, and he is actively avoiding us."
Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to contact the Palmerston North police station on (06) 351 3600. Information can also be provided anonymously to the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
