Search and rescue teams from Hamilton will today join in the search for Maketū man John Kohi Mohi who went missing almost a week ago.
A police media communications spokeswoman said more than 80 people are involved in day six of the search, including 41 police and Land Search and Rescue members and 48 members of the community.
Land Search and Rescue members from the Waikato have also joined the search, which will remain focussed on the Maketū area.
Mohi, 77, suffers from dementia and had not been in contact with family since Monday when he went on his daily one to two-hour stroll from his Church Rd homestead at midday.
