Up to 12 seasonal workers from the Pacific are unaccounted for in the aftermath of Cyclone Gabrielle. Immigration Minister Michael Wood confirmed that a group of workers here under the Recognised Seasonal Employment scheme had not yet been located. Authorities believe the missing 12 may have made their own way to different evacuation sites around those areas. Michael Wood says there are 5000 RSE workers in the broader area of Hawke’s Bay and Gisborne and the majority of workers have been accounted for and being looked after by either their employers or at evacuation sites.
