10:29 am on 16 May 2014

A German tourist who hadn't been seen for nearly two months after tramping in the South Island has been found safe and well.

Richard Schwabe, 19, has now made contact and is said to be in Golden Bay.

Prior to his discovery, the last known contact with him was on 17 March.

Police were hoping to speak to Mr Schwabe later on Friday to establish what has happened.
