Search under way for missing trampers
A search is being launched this morning for missing trampers in North Canterbury.
The alarm was raised yesterday night when the group of four failed to return from tramping in Chest Peak, Oxford, in the afternoon as expected, a police spokesman said.
It was believed the group may have had trouble with their vehicle, but that was not yet confirmed, he said.
Police and search and rescue volunteers from Oxford would scour the area for the group this morning. If they did not find the trampers, a helicopter would be sent, he said.
