NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 19/04/2017

An eight-year-old girl has been found treading water in Auckland's Manukau Harbour during a search sparked by the discovery of a drifting, empty boat.

However, a 52-year-old man remains missing on Wednesday night.

Police and the coast guard began an air, sea and land search after the small boat was spotted in the harbour around 4.30pm.

They located the girl in the evening and she was taken to Middlemore Hospital.

Police say she and the man are believed to have gone out fishing together.
