NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 5/06/2017

A hunter who went missing in the eastern Ruahine Ranges has been found safe and well.

The man in his 20s was hover-loaded to a nearby road just before midnight on Monday after he managed to signal a search and rescue team with a torch.

He was separated from the group he was hunting with and Police Search and Rescue had been concerned for his safety due to inexperience, a spokeswoman for the Palmerston North Rescue Helicopter said.
