Sixty search and rescue volunteers, Red Cross volunteers, a rescue search dog and police are today searching Wakari, Helensburgh, Halfway Bush, Kaikorai Valley and Frasers Gully.

The Dunedin Marine Search and Rescue team is also checking waterways and culverts in Kaikorai Valley.

Residents are being asked to check their properties thoroughly, particularly in the Halfway Bush area.
