NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 19/08/2016

Dozens of volunteers and police have resumed the search for a tramper missing in Tararua Forest Park north of Wellington.

John Arthur, 67, entered the park on Tuesday and had planned to return to his car at Otaki Forks by 3.30pm on Thursday, but never arrived.

On Saturday morning, about 50 police and search volunteers resumed scouring the area, while four teams stayed in the area overnight.

An Air Force helicopter and crew have also been brought in to assist in the search.

Arthur is described as an experienced tramper, lean, tall and balding.

Police want to hear from anyone who's been in the park on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.
