The search for the swimmer who went missing at the west Auckland beach of Piha has now been moved to a recovery mission.

Weather hampered the search for the missing 24-year-old over the weekend, who was last seen near Lion Rock early on Saturday evening.

The Eagle helicopter is searching the area along with Surf Lifesaving, which is undertaking an on-water search.

A Coastguard air patrol plane was in the air for a short time on Sunday.
