A Levin man missing for more than 24 hours after failing to return from a bushwalk was found on Wednesday morning.

Stuart Rangihuna, 39, left his home early Tuesday morning, leaving his wife a note saying he had gone for a walk to the lake, believed to be Lake Horowhenua.

When he did not return and no one had heard from him, police were alerted and a search launched, covering tracks around nearby lakes.

The search for Mr Rangihuna resumed at 8:30am this morning, with teams of police officers and Land Search and Rescue volunteers deployed to the Ohau Valley area.

Senior sergeant Willie Roy said Mr Rangihuna was found just before 9am in remote bush near the Trig Track, several hundred metres off Denton Rd, just east of Levin.

He said Mr Rangihuna had sustained some moderate injuries from being ''out in the conditions'' for more then 24 hours.
An ambulance was called and Mr Rangihuna was transferred to the Horowhenua Health Centre where he is now in a stable condition.
