Kerikeri police said Campesi Gino Huch disappeared beneath the waterline at the Lily Pond lagoon in Haruru on the afternoon of Janaury 8.

He was later found by family and ambulance staff. Attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.

The lagoon and the nearby Haruru falls are popular Northland summer destinations.
