Police have suspended the search for the man still missing from yesterday's Kaipara Harbour tragedy until 5.30am tomorrow, because of bad weather this evening.

Investigators continue to look for debris from the capsized boat the Francie. They ask anyone who may have found debris that might be from the wreckage to leave it where they found it and to contact police immediately.

Police asked anyone who had already taken debris or items washed ashore that could be from the boat to also contact them
