The search for a missing 18-year-old lost off the New Plymouth coast has continued today.
The 18-year-old went missing after their boat overturned near Paritutu Rock about 6.30 on Monday morning.
Police, Land Search and Rescue volunteers, Surf Lifesaving and the South Taranaki Coastguard have been working together to find the missing person.
Ground teams have been searching the beach between Oakura and Bell Block, while the Taranaki Rescue Helicopter has been searching up to 5km out to sea.
The search area expanded throughout the day as wind and tide conditions changed.
The search will be reviewed tonight and a decision will be made on the next stage.
