Geok Yeo was originally reported missing by his family, in the Henderson area on 16 June.

Detective Sergeant Kelly Farrant said officers were trying to piece together the 65-year-old's movements to understand how he got from West Auckland to Rotorua.

She said Mr Yeo did not have access to a car so may have been given a lift or used public transport.

He was wearing a green and white striped shirt when he left his house and still had it on when his body was found three weeks later.
