Kohi point track closes for police operation

The public is being asked to avoid the Kohi Point area today, as a police operation is carried out.

The operation will take place on the Ngā Tapuwae o Toi walkway and includes the use of police dogs.

During this time the track will be closed between Seaview Road and West End Beach - including the Kapu Te Rangi Pā and Ōtarawairere Village entrances.

Police say these points will be staffed to ensure no-one enters the track while the operation is underway.

Police have not confirmed what the operation is, but this is the area where missing man Joseph Webb was last seen.
