Lake Te Anau © Wikicommons/James Shook Lake Te Anau Sightings of several flares at Lake Te Anau in the South Island have prompted a public appeal after a large-scale search of the area found no one.

Police say a series of flares was set off at the southern end of the lake at about 11pm on Saturday.

Tourist operators, volunteers and police teams scoured the area using water craft and a helicopter overnight but weren't able to find the source of the flares.

They are now appealing to the public for any information.
