Leo Lipp-Neighbours’ disappearance may soon be solved but there are 333 other Kiwis still missing.
In the seven years since teenager Leo Lipp-Neighbours vanished in Nelson thousands of other people have been reported missing in New Zealand.
While his cold case looks set to close – after the recovery of his car containing human remains earlier this week – other families have waited years – even decades – for news of their missing loved ones.
More than 8000 people are reported missing here each year.
Nearly all turn up within two weeks – but others are never seen or heard from again.
