The search for missing Swedish hunter Christian Tommarck continues today.

Tommarck, 27, went hunting on May 12 in the Karangarua region, south of Fox Glacier, and has not been seen since. He was due out of the bush four days ago.

Yesterday police located a sleeping bag and tent believed to belong to him.

Today four search teams, including Land SAR volunteers, were in the area focusing on the upper reaches of the Regina Creek and Tommarck's last known campsite.


Weather conditions in the area today were cold and clear, police said.

Tommarck's family in Sweden have been notified of the search and are being kept up to date on any developments.

Police would still like to hear from anyone who has been in the Karangarua area, south of Fox Glacier, in the past week. Anyone with any information or sightings is asked to contact Greymouth Police on 03 768 1600.
