The search for a missing fisherman on Lake Wakatipu near Glenorchy has resumed this morning.
Senior Sergeant Paula Enoka, of Queenstown, said the New Zealand man, who was not a local, was reported missing about 3.20pm yesterday.
He was fishing near the shore of Lake Wakatipu at the Bucker Burn river mouth, just south of the township.
A boat was now carrying out a shoreline search, and the Police National Dive Squad was expected to arrive this afternoon.
LandSAR staff searched the shoreline on foot yesterday.
Queenstown Lakes harbourmaster Marty Black said the coastguard and first responders from Glenorchy were involved in the search.
"There were a couple of boats out there for quite a while," he said.
The man had not been found by 8pm. The search was expected to continue this morning.
"It's not good news for anyone," Black said.
