What Happend to Julian Stukenborg?

Posted by te2ataria on June 25, 2011

Was he yet another victim of NZ tourism?

Wanaka Police say they have no idea what happened to the German tramper who has been missing in Mt Aspiring National Park.

German tourist Julian Stukenborg, 23, said to be tramping alone on the Cascade Saddle, has not been heard from for 9 days and did not contact a friend on June 22 as he had arranged previously, according to a report.

Mr Stukenborg is described as 193cm tall, with an athletic build. “He had a large black and green Deutor back pack, a green Katmandu two person tent and is a keen photographer.”

Wanka Police has asked anyone with information to contact them.

    [You may not insult the dead. If what you are saying is true about his climbing gear, it should suggest foul play NOT “stupidity.” Moderator]

      In your opinion, how has Julian Stukenborg been insulted in the report? The word “stupidity” appears only in your comment.
