Rotorua police are seeking sightings of a man and his nephew who have been missing for five days.

Detective Sergeant George Staunton, Rotorua CIB, said Raymond Fleet, 51, and James Fleet, 25, were last seen by their families between 1pm and 6pm on Monday.

Police believe they are together and could be in the Rotorua or Auckland areas.

The pair's behaviour was out of character and their disappearance was at odds with their normal activities and work commitments, Mr Staunton said.
