A search is underway for a 60-year-old man missing from Auckland. 

Det Insp Glenn Baldwin, of Auckland City, said there were "grave concerns" for Ronny Okeke, who was reported missing from Sandringham on May 3.  

"An investigation team has been working to try and piece together Ronny's movements and what may have led to his disappearance.  

"Ronny was last seen on April 27, 2024, in the Mt Roskill area.  

"He is captured on CCTV footage leaving the New World on Stoddard Rd at 4:42pm."  

Baldwin said this remained the last confirmed sighting of Okeke.  

"Ronny is regularly in contact with his wife, who lives overseas," Baldwin added.  

"For her calls to continue to go unanswered since April 27 is highly unusual and gives us cause for concern.  

"We are continuing to keep an open mind about what has happened to Ronny."  

Anyone with information on Okeke's whereabouts was urged to contact the police on 105, quoting file number 240501/3879.  

"If you saw Ronny on April 27, or if you have seen or heard from him since, it is very important that you contact us," Baldwin said.
