Police are issuing a renewed appeal for information from the public to help locate missing Tauranga woman Rebeka Storey.

On Saturday, September 5 of this year, Rebeka let her family know that she was driving from Tauranga to her sister’s house in Ranfurly.

She intended to camp overnight in her Suzuki Swift. The registration of her vehicle is CWD620.


The last sighting that was confirmed of Rebeka was at 11:47 pm on September 5 at the Caltex service station in Granton, Tauranga.

Her white Suzuki was recorded travelling south down the Tauranga Eastern Link at 12:31 am that day. At around midday on Sunday, September 6, Rebeka’s Suzuki was seen at the Manganku campsite on State Highway 2 in the Waioeka Gorge.

Rebeka never actually made it to Ranfurly where her sister lives and hasn’t been in contact with her family since.

Police recovered her Suzuki from the campsite, and the surrounding area was extensively searched by Search and Rescue teams.

“Unfortunately, there has been no sign of Rebeka, and Police and her family are very concerned for her,” said Detective Senior Sergeant Craig Rawlinson, Western Bay of Plenty Police.

For anyone who has seen Rebeka or her vehicle, since September 5, please get in touch on 105 and quote file number 200909/2598.
