From Checkpoint, 5:52 pm on 25 May 2023

The coroners court has heard 11-year-old Mike Beckenridge's name was written on items of clothing that washed up in Southland following the disappearance of the boy and his step-father eight years ago.

Police who examined the scene where John Beckenridge's car plunged off a Curio Bay cliff-top also found two sticks lashed together like a marker near the edge.
