James "Hemi" Rano Dick © NZ Police James "Hemi" Rano Dick Police divers have joined the search for a freedom camper that went missing during a walk by a Golden Bay river nearly a week ago.

James "Hemi" Rano Dick was last seen waist-deep in water near the crusher plant below the rapids in the Takaka River on Wednesday afternoon.

On Tuesday, police said a dive squad had joined the search effort.

Three investigators from Nelson have also arrived on the scene and will be talking statements over the next few days.

Land Search and Rescue teams last week scoured the river's banks and sent out kayaks.

Nelson Police have issued an appeal of sightings and are asking to hear from anyone who may have talked to Mr Dick since Wednesday.
