The search for an Air New Zealand pilot who has been missing in Hong Kong for five days resumed on Monday.

Stephen Morrissey, 51, was last seen on Wednesday while tramping with another New Zealander on the Wilson Trail in the hills of the New Territories region.

Mr Morrissey has a cell phone with him and Air New Zealand says police have worked through all options in trying to track it, though the battery is now likely to be flat.

Air New Zealand staff and Mr Morrissey's family have been helping in the search.
