Police are searching for a man who failed to return from a possum trapping trip in North Otago.
Senior Sergeant Craig Brown, of Dunedin, said the man was due back from a trip near Otekaike, between Duntroon and Kurow, this afternoon but had not returned.
The group he was meeting conducted a small search of the area before contacting police, he said.
A ground crew were now responding to an emergency locator beacon which had gone off in the area.
