An 85-year-old man had to be airlifted out of the Kaweka Range after getting lost.

The Lowe Corporation Rescue Helicopter responded to a call made by the rescue coordination centre to search for a Personal Locator Beacon that was activated in the Kaweka's.

The elderly man was found on a steep track not long after 2pm yesterday.

He was winched out of the area and returned to his car at the car park, safe and well.
