Search for fishermen continues

9:47 am on 2 September 2011

A search is continuing for two men missing on a fishing trip on Lake Arapuni in South Waikato.

They have not been seen since setting off in a boat from Jones Landing at the northern end of the lake on Sunday.

One is Jordan Pooley, 21, of Tokoroa. The name of his companion, 45, is being withheld as police are still trying to contact next of kin overseas.

They were reported missing on Wednesday, after a dog belonging to one of them returned home alone.

Police are asking for any sightings of the men to help them narrow down their search on the lake, which is 25km long.
