Police are appealing for the public’s help identifying a person found dead in Lake Wānaka today.

The body was recovered from the lake near Waterfall Creek this morning, police said.

“They are described as a Caucasian male likely in their 20s, wearing a light blue sweatshirt, dark grey chino jeans and white tennis shoes,” a police spokesperson said.

“Police would like to hear from anyone in the area who has family or friends that haven’t returned home.”

Anyone with information is asked to call 105.

We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
