David Nyika medal theft: Do you know these people who could help solve Commonwealth Games gold medal mystery?

As the investigation into the theft of boxer David Nyika’s 2018 Commonwealth Games gold medal continues, Hamilton Police say they are yet to identify four people who may be of assistance in cracking the case.

Nyika, who backed up his Glasgow light heavyweight gold with a win over Australia's Jason Whately in the heavyweight division on the Gold Coast, was in Auckland last month when he noticed his medal, as well as some vouchers, had been stolen from his car.

He reported the theft to police on April 29 and an investigation began with police releasing stills from a CCTV camera in the store Nyika had been in prior to the theft.

Police still want to know who the four individuals are in the photographs, pictured, as they believe they may be able to assist them.

However, police say following an appeal earlier this week, a man and a woman police were seeking to identify are now helping with inquiries. 

"Obviously a Commonwealth Games medal is very distinctive and of huge personal significance to the victim and his family, and we want to see it returned.

"We believe someone will know who the people in these photographs are, and we urge them to get in touch with us," Detective Sergeant Slater said.

Information can be passed to  on (07) 858 6200.

Anyone who wishes to remain anonymous can contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

A2 Milk shares plunge nearly 20% on NZX before recovering after news market didn't expect

Shares in The A2 Milk Company have plummeted after the New Zealand-based dairy firm said full-year sales revenue would be lower than analysts had forecast.

A2 said today it expects revenue for the 12 months to June 30 to rise as much as 67 per cent to between $NZ900 million and $NZ920 million ($A826.8 million and $A845.2 million), but that was lower than analysts had expected.

Deutsche Bank had forecast $NZ923 million in sales after A2 unveiled a strong first-half result in February, and reiterated its expectation in March.

A2's ASX-listed shares fell as much as 20 per cent at the open before recovering slightly.

The dual-listed firm's shares fared even more poorly on the NZ exchange, dragging the overall market lower with a fall of about 20 per cent before recovering some of that lost ground.

In a third-quarter trading update, A2 said revenue for the nine months to March 31 was $NZ660 million, up about 70 per cent from the same time a year ago and more than the $NZ549.5 million in the whole of FY17.

Driving the performance was growth in both nutritional products and liquid milk, as well as seasonal sales from key selling events in China.

The strong analyst forecasts had come after the company doubled its first-half profit to $NZ98.47 million on the back of strong growth in infant formula and liquid milk sales in core markets.

It lifted revenue 70 per cent to $NZ434.7 million and secured an alliance with global dairy giant Fonterra to produce new products and expand into new markets.


NZ dairy industry is feeling the pressure following Fonterra’s low milk price forecast.
