The young woman said she ran away from her grandparents home a short time later after Hastie paid for a bus ticket for her to New Plymouth under a false name. She was, however, not prepared for the person who greeted her when she reached her destination.

“I was pretty shocked,” she said. “He definitely wasn’t a young surfer, he was an old man, 50 or 60. I started texting my friend saying, He’s not young, he’s old, I don’t know what I’ve done. I was freaking out.”
