When he was just 13 David Lomas started writing for a Wellington newspaper, his last quarter of a century's been spent in television. In between he worked for newspapers, RNZ and The Listener among others.

He was the first New Zealand journalist to gain access to the French nuclear testing sites on Mururoa Atoll and has many documentaries to his name including Wahine Disaster and The Real Mr Asia. David also produced current affairs programmes 60 Minutes, Sunday and was part of the original team on the Holmes programme.

He is now best known for fronting the high-rating TV3 show Lost and Found, formerly called Missing Pieces, where he brings together family members who have, for any number of reasons, become estranged.
