American tramper missing in New Zealand

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 26/03/2017

An American tramper on the Te Araroa Trail hasn't been in touch with friends so police are appealing for sightings of him.

Clint Hewitt, 32, was last seen leaving Manuka Hut in the Ashburton Lakes District last Wednesday and was heading north on the Te Araroa Trail.

He was intending to walk the trail, which next meets the road along the banks of the Rakaia River.

Mr Hewitt is very experienced and has already completed a significant part of the trail.

He is likely to be wearing a distinctive straw cowboy style hat and a blue shirt.
