Ken Boogers, 26, was last seen on the Pillar Point track, between Wharariki and Puponga on Saturday morning. He had said he was going for a walk on the Hilltop Track.

Police said he was only wearing a t-shirt, shorts and bare feet and concerns were growing for his safety.

Specialist search dogs from Canterbury have now been brought in to help in the search, which will resume tomorrow.

The search has been focusing on the coastline between Wharariki and Farewell Spit.
