DNA tests will be needed to confirm if a body found in the Lower Hutt suburb of Naenae is that of a missing 55-year-old man.

The body was found in bush behind Wilcox Grove, Naenae at 3.40pm yesterday.

Acting Senior Sergeant Nick Thom said police suspected the body could be that of Lesley Kreibel, a 55-year-old autistic man reported missing in November.

Kreibel's family have been told of the discovery.

Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Thornton said DNA testing would be needed to confirm the identity of the body, and that would take about a fortnight.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
