Officers from Tuggerah Lakes Local Area Command attended and commenced an investigation.

As part of their inquiries, police would like to speak to a man and a woman who may be able to assist them.

The man is described as being of Caucasian appearance, 180cm tall, of thin build, wearing a white t-shirt, black shorts and a black and white cap.

The woman is described as being of Caucasian appearance, of large build, with dark hair.

Anyone with information about the man and the woman, or the vehicle, described as a dark coloured late model Toyota Camry, is asked to come forward.
