Mother missing for six months

Christchurch police appealed tonight for help in finding a Korean woman not seen since August last year.

Detective Sergeant Ross Tarawhiti told NZPA Yoon Suk Chun, a slimly built 58-year-old, is married with children but told family in Christchurch in August she was going away for a short holiday in the North island.

She has not been since and police have failed to find her.

She was reported missing officially in December and police have been trying since to determine her movements.

The woman is also known as Jessica Chun.
