Hunt for suspected baby abductor continues

4:43 pm on 27 August 2013

The hunt for a man who police believe abducted a two-year-old baby in Auckland has entered its third week.

Phillip Edwards, 33, has been on the run since he allegedly kidnapped Gabriel Witehira-Donnelly from his Panmure home on 11 August.

The two-year-old was found eight hours later.

Edwards has since posted comments about the abduction to his Facebook page.

He was released from prison last year after serving almost nine years for manslaughter.

Police believe he is with Maryanne Nahi, who is 25.
