Police have located a man that was reported missing on Christmas day. The man went missing between Papamoa and Gisborne on Friday.

The 67-year-old, Gregg Shaw, was located on Sunday afternoon in his car at around 4 pm. He suffered some injuries but was conscious when found.

He crashed down a steep bank on State Highway 2 roughly an hour northbound of Gisborne.

A helicopter was sent out to the scene to transport the man to hospital.

State Highway 2 was temporarily closed between Cemetery Road and Rakauroa Road to allow the helicopter to land.

“Police would like to thank all those who assisted with our enquiries and got in touch with information during the search for the man.”
