An Australian tourist missing in the Nelson Lakes National Park has been found and taken to Nelson hospital for a check-up.

Search and Rescue teams found Dominic Marozzi, 47, at the head of Lake Rotoiti.

He had gone for a run around the lake yesterday afternoon and failed to return.

Inspector Hugh Flower says Mr Marozzi probably got lost and had to spend the night in the open in freezing temperatures.
