NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 21/05/2017

The search for missing Swedish national Christian Tommarck is continuing on Sunday in cold and clear weather.

The 27-year-old went hunting by himself in the isolated Karangarua area, south of Fox Glacier on the West Coast, more than a week ago and was due out last Wednesday.

Four search teams, including Land SAR volunteers, are in the area on Sunday and are focusing on the upper reaches of the Regina Creek and Mr Tommarck's last known campsite.

A sleeping bag and tent were found at the campsite on Saturday.

Mr Tommarck's family in Sweden have been told he is missing and are being kept up to date.
