The search continues at Waikato’s Papanui Point after reports a person fell from the rocks into the water.
The rocky and rugged outcrop, near Raglan, is notoriously dangerous but the site continues to attract members of the fishing community – despite claiming 24 lives since 1980.
A police spokesperson told Newshub they were alerted shortly before 1:40pm, and still haven’t found anyone.
“The search is ongoing, with Coastguard, Surf Lifesaving assisting Police search teams and Police drone team,” a spokesperson said.
“Weather conditions are incredibly challenging, but the search will continue while there is sufficient daylight available.”
