Police are trying to trace the last movements of a man found dead in a partially-submerged car near Hamilton.

Kyle Jason Sutherland, 26, was found dead in his car in a small stream on Matangi Rd on Wednesday morning.

He appeared to have lost control and crashed into the stream overnight. Police say Mr Sutherland was last seen at about 7.15pm on Tuesday night, when he was visiting a relative.

He told them he was going to visit a friend in Matangi and possibly go to the supermarket.

He appeared to be heading west on Matangi Rd when the crash occurred, police say.

Police are appealing for sightings of Mr Sutherland's red Chevrolet Blazer, which had a blue driver door.
