Police have arrested a 17-year-old male over the kidnapping of an 18-month-old boy from his Rotorua home.

The boy was found uninjured just after 8am on Tuesday with police still establishing the circumstances around the incident.

The 17-year-old is not known to the family and police are not seeking anyone else in relation to this inquiry.

He will appear in Rotorua District Court on Wednesday.

Earlier, James Kiff said his son Elisaia had been abducted during a break-in on Monday night.

Police had initially searched the family home and the surrounding area for the missing toddler without success.
