Wairarapa police are asking the public to help them find missing man Christopher Hope.
The 45-year-old was last seen in Masterston on 10.30am wearing a black hooded jersey and black trousers.
Police and Hope's family are concerned for his safety and well-being.
It's unlikely he has access to a vehicle and police believe he may still be on foot in the greater Masterton area.
