It was anchored south of Waiheke with a fishing rod still out.

The fisherman was missing.

A search was commenced with Eagle and Deodar without success.

This morning another search was started with jet skis, boats and a plane.

Police received a call just before midday from a local boatie to say he had located a body floating in the water between Waiheke and Motuihe.

Deodar attended and found the deceased was the missing fisherman.

The deceased was wearing a life jacket.
