Police are turning to the public for help over a kidnapping in which a man was dragged into a car and repeatedly assaulted.
The victim, a man in his 20s, was sitting in his dark grey Holden Commodore outside Sylvia Park at about 1pm on 26 September, police said.
Two men approached the victim and forced him into the back seat of the car before driving around the wider Auckland area, they said.
The victim was repeatedly assaulted and passed out from his injuries.
He was eventually driven to Riverhead where he managed to escape, and was later treated in hospital for a black eye and bumps and bruises.
Detective Constable Lewis Sin said police still did not know what the motivation for the attack was, or where the victim's car had ended up, despite several weeks of investigations.
However, they had CCTV footage from a petrol station in Wiri where the kidnappers had stopped, which showed one of the alleged kidnappers and the victim's car.
"These are good photos and we're hopeful this man will either come forward and speak to us or someone will know who he is and help us out, " Mr Sin said.
The kidnappers were described as a male Pacific Islander in his mid-20s to early 30s, with noticeable acne scarring on his face and a tattoo on his upper right arm; and a male European described as very pale, with a leg tattoo.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the two men or the victim's 2010 dark grey Holden Commodore should contact police, Mr Sin said.
