The owner of an inflatable raft police recovered from the Hutt River today has been found, safe and sound.

Police said earlier today they had major concerns after a 2-metre inflatable raft was found on the Hutt River.

The yellow raft was found floating past the Tait rocks about 11.15am.

It was first spotted in the river, partly submerged, about 10am floating between Ferguson Drive and Moonshine Road.

However, this evening a spokeswoman confirmed a member of the public had contacted police about the raft.

The person went to the police station and was able to identify the raft as their own.
