A teenager arrested following the disappearance of a 18-month-old boy from his Rotorua home is set to appear in court.

The boy, Elisaia Kiff, was found uninjured on Tuesday morning after his father James reported he had vanished during a break-in overnight.

A 17-year-old arrested shortly after, who is not known to the family, is set to appear in the Rotorua District Court on Wednesday.

Police said they were still investigating.

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