The body of a fisherman who was missing for a week has been found.

Andrew Woonton, 58, of Manurewa, went fishing and free-diving by himself at Orere Point on the Firth of Thames last Friday.

The police helicopter located his body at the high-tide mark about halfway along the Orere-Matingarahi road on Wednesday morning.
