Search for missing man not given priority, says Nicky Stevens' family
The family of Hamilton man Nicky Stevens believe their son may have been found alive had police acted sooner. His body was found in the Waikato River on March 12, 2015, 3 days after he was reported missing from the mental health facility where he was under a compulsory care order. Stevens' father, Dave Macpherson, said a witness statement placed Stevens in the city centre on March 10, the day after he disappeared from the Henry Rongomau Bennett Centre. His body was discovered on 12 March.
