American missing from Heaphy Track

Police are trying to find a 52-year-old American man who failed to turn up at huts he had booked along the Heaphy Track in Golden Bay.

Bob Kuhmann also failed to arrive at accommodation he had booked in Karamea yesterday, police said.

He arrived in New Zealand on April 5 and had been booked into huts on the track between Tuesday and Thursday last week. He had not stayed at any of them.

Anyone who has been in touch with Kuhmann, or knows where he is, is asked to contact Greymouth police on 03 768 1600.
