The body of a 15-year-old boy who went missing from a West Auckland beach five days ago has been found.

Zebedee Pua was swept out to sea on Thursday afternoon when he was caught in a rip at O'Neill Bay, 1km north of Bethells Beach trying to save a younger girl in trouble in the water. His body was last night discovered by the police Eagle helicopter at Kirikiri Bay
