Search and rescue teams are set to resume their search for a Hamilton man after he went missing in the Waikato River when he took an early morning swim.

Hazael Mailata, who was with a friend, decided to go for a swim just before 3am on Wednesday near Grantham Street in Hamilton.

His friend lost sight of him and family and friends have had no contact with the 21-year-old since.
