Body confirmed as missing veterinarian



A Police spokesperson has said Police can now confirm that a male found deceased on a property in Whitford was missing man John Prangley.

He was 55-years-old from Whitford, and was a local veterinarian at the Franklin Vets Papakura branch.

His body was found on Wednesday 10 May, nearly a month after he went missing on Thursday 13 April.

John’s family has asked that they be allowed to grieve their loss in private and do not wish to be contacted by media.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
