Hi Does anyone know what the loud explosions were from last night (Saturday after 10pm). They seemed to be coming from Birkenhead Point, or perhaps down in Little Shoal Bay. I know a number of people were concerned/frightened by them and wonder who and what was responsible.
beware of people not taking any dog's dropping.Some people dont bother to take them away.I have been watching for people that they ignored to take them away.Photo will be taken and handed it over to the Auckland council or the police.
Police say they have exhausted all leads for finding Eloi Rolland, 18, who has been missing from Auckland for almost four months.
The teen, who has limited English, has not been seen since he was captured on CCTV at the Britomart train station on March 7, where he caught a train to New Lynn's Fruitvale Rd station. It's understood he was in the vicinity of Piha Rd and Scenic Drive at 9.18am, but this is where the trail ends.
After more than 1600 hours searching for Rolland, police ended the physical search in May, pending reports of new information or evidence.
Rolland's sister, Aurore Rolland, told Stuff the family were "really sad" the search had been suspended.
"We [are at] the point where we are waiting for a miracle. We believe [he] is not dead in the sea at Piha Beach. Things need to be done, even if we have to search during our entire life."
