Two missing kayakers were found safe and well this afternoon after they failed to arrive at the Napier end of the Tutaekuri river last night.

The kayakers had been dropped at the top end of the Tutaekuri River yesterday and were due to reach Napier that night, but failed to arrive.

The Hawke's Bay rescue helicopter located the two men five kilometres down stream from their drop off point. They had carried and dragged their kayaks over rocks due to low waters levels and were tired and hungry.
