Police divers have found a man's body in Lake Wairarapa near Featherston.

The dive team were searching for missing Wellington man, 71-year-old Karl Richard Morris, after land searches failed to locate him.

He has been missing since the beginning of October when his car was found parked at a bush reserve.

Police said the body had not been formally identified and the cause of death was not regarded as suspicious.
