    Local iwi have performed a karakia where a missing body was found - in the search for the missing kayaker on Lake Ellesmere


    Police believe the body to be that of 59-year-old Louis Solofua... who disappeared on Saturday.

    Local iwi, Te Taumutu Runanga, have placed a rahui on the area between Greenpark Huts and the Kaitorete Spit.

    Police are extending their sympathies to Solofua's family - and thanking those involved in the search.

    The death will be referred to the Coroner.
