Search continues for missing Palmerston North man

The search for missing Palmerston North man Brett Hall will resume today.

Concern is mounting for the 47-year-old, after more than five days without any sign of him.

Mr Hall was last seen at his lifestyle block off River Road, north of Parakino, 20km from Wanganui, on Sunday.

He was reported missing on Tuesday night.

A search and rescue operation was launched on Wednesday morning, involving teams of police and volunteers from Whanganui and Palmerston North. Helicopters had also been used.

A caravan on the lifestyle block had been found unlocked along with Mr Hall's vehicle and quad bike, which led police to believe he was still in the area.

Searches were being carried out over 16 sq km.

Mr Hall was described as Caucasian, about 182cm tall and medium build. It was not known what he was wearing when he went missing.
