Police concerned for missing British visitor

3:18 pm on 17 January 2013

Police are searching for a British visitor to the South Island missing for two weeks.

Alan Kitching, 65, arrived at Dunedin airport on 22 December and picked up a rental car.

He was meant to return the car on 4 January but has failed to do so.

The vehicle is a Toyota Highlander with registration GHW768.

Police say they fear for his safety, though there may be a simple explanation as to why he has not been seen.

They are appealing for Mr Kitching to contact the nearest police station.
