The Evening Post 7th August 1885
Carterton, This Day
Fears are entertained for the safety of George Buck, a son of Mrs. Buck, of Taita. He was returning from Carterton on Sunday afternoon to Cooper''s Station, Wainuiorau, and has not been seen or heard of since. He is supposed to have been drowned in the Wainuiorau River, as his horse was found with the saddle on near the river.
Masterton, This Day.
Mr. Buck''s bridle has been picked up lower down the river, which has been in high flood for some days. Search is being made for the body. A further report is to the effect that the accident took place in the Wainuiorau, on the road from Gladstone to Glenburn.

Masterton, This Day.
The report that the body of G. Buck, drowned in the Wainuiorau, has been found, is incorrect. If the body had been washed 28 miles away, it would be eight miles out at sea.

Carterton, This Day. A human skull has been found on the bank of the Wainuioru Stream by one of Mr. Cooper''s station hands. It is thought it may have belonged to George Buck, who was drowned in crossing that stream about five years ago. Buck''s father resides at the Hutt.
