Raglan police searching for 42 year old Jason Waterman since yesterday afternoon, have found a man's body in steep terrain, around 300m from where the missing man's car was left. It is believed to be Mr Waterman, but a formal identification has yet to confirm this.
Police are unable to determine the cause of death, and are looking into the circumstances of Mr Waterman's disappearance.
A large number of people, including friends and family of Mr Waterman, Search and Rescue members from Waikato and Waitomo, Raglan Surf Rescue, local Raglan Police, and the Auckland Police helicopter were involved in the overnight search.
Sergeant Warren Shaw from the Waikato Search and Rescue Squad wishes to thank all those who were involved in any way assisting in this search.
