Police believe they've found the body of an Orewa man who went missing six days ago.
Mike McClennan, 75, disappeared from the Milton Court Rest Home last Wednesday and was last seen walking on the Hibiscus Coast Highway.
Police say a body was found this evening in dense bush near Hatfields Beach.
Although formal identification is yet to take place, police say they believe it is Mr McClennan.
The matter has been referred to the Coroner.
