A body has been located north of the Mohaka River mouth south of Wairoa.

The body was recovered by Tairāwhiti Staff yesterday. Formal identification is yet to take place, which may take several days.

The death is not being treated as suspicious and will be referred to the Coroner.

Police would like to thank Ngati Pāhauwera for their support during the operation to recover the body.

A rāhui has been put on the Mohaka beach/river for the next three days.
