It's been two years since Jamie Kaiwai disappeared from Tolaga Bay, but her whanau remains as determined as ever to find out what happened.
They have raised money to hire two former detectives to investigate and what they have found may upend the case.
The police have always maintained that while unexplained, Kaiwai's disappearance from Tolaga Bay on October 10, 2019, is not suspicious. They believe she most likely died in the sea.
But cousin Jonique Oli-Alainu'uese has always believed Kaiwai's disappearance is suspicious and she's run multiple social media campaigns to try to find what happened.
"I can't accept the lack of investigation into the case. I can't let go because there's too much wrong," she says.
The investigator hired by the family, former detective Hamish Kerr, agrees.
"There are issues that are problematic, primarily around the scenes that the police have looked at, particularly Jamie's car," he told The Hui.
Kaiwai's car was found at Tolaga Bay wharf on October 13, 2019, three days after she went missing.
The investigators now have two photographs showing the vehicle in the car park on the evening of October 10 and also again on October 12. But the car was parked in different spots both times, meaning someone moved it after Kaiwai disappeared.
Kerr says the photographs bring up a lot more questions and they need the public to come forward to build an accurate timeline of her movements.
October 2019 was particularly busy in Tolaga Bay, with the Tuia 250 celebrations taking place.
Police say their investigation remains open and active, however at this time, it's not being treated as suspicious.
Once the investigation has concluded, the matter will be referred to the Coroner.
Police say they continue to liaise closely with the family and encourage anyone with information about the lead-up to Kaiwai's disappearance that may assist the investigation to call 105.
The family's investigators are also asking anyone who took photos from October 10 to October 13 to phone 0800 123 114.
