17 Mar 1920: Wellington Times: The strange disappearance of Mr J. F. Hursthouse, of Kelburn, a well-known dental surgeon in Wellington is occasioning his friends great anxiety. Mr Hursthouse, who is a returned soldier, had been in somewhat indifferent ill health for some time past. He had been staying with relatives at York Bay, and had been missing from there since Sunday. A party of seventeen, including the constable in charge at Eastbourne, searched between Day's Bay and York Bay throughout Monday without discovering any traces of the missing man

MR. HURSTHOUSE NOT YET FOUND
Word has been received that Mr. J. F. Hursthouse, who has been missing since Sunday last, has been seen by one of the keepers of Pencarrow lighthouse. A man called there on Sunday afternoon, and the description given is sufficiently exact to give Mr. Hursthouse's friends good ground for believing that it was he who called. He was also seen by a resident in Gollan's Valley, who described him fairly accurately. He was last seen making across Gollan's Valley near the beach, and a party of friends are leaving to search down the Wainui Valley near the area to-day. Mr. Hursthouse is a man 5 feet 11 inches in height, clean shaven, 36 years of age, of medium build, reddish complexion and hair, with heavy eyebrows and eyelashes, a prominent nose, and bluish-grey eyes. When last seen he was wearing a Norfolk suit of a heather colour, with golf cap and brown military boots with rubber soles. The search parties arranged for to-day to scour the York Bay bush have now been abandoned, and attention is directed to Gollan's Valley and the Wainui beach.
