7:35 pm on 14 April 2016

A house at a Horowhenua beach, which is believed to belong to a gang, has been set on fire and a man is missing - and police want to know if there's a link.

Detectives are investigating an arson at the Hokio Beach property, which they think is owned by members of the Nomad gang.

Officers are also looking into the disappearance of a local man associated with the gang.

The arson investigation is due to be completed by the end of the week.
