The identity of the man arrested by police investigating the homicide of Whanganui man Whetu Hansen will remain secret.

The man's name, age, identifying details and the charge he is facing were suppressed at his first appearance in Palmerston North District Court last week.

He reappeared in court today where Judge Les Atkins continued the interim suppression order until the man's next appearance.

He was remanded in custody and will appear again next year.

The man was arrested after speaking to police investigating the disappearance of Hansen.

Hansen was last seen on November 24, and police launched a missing persons inquiry on December 2.

A property on Akers Rd, Linton, has been the focal point of the investigation, which was elevated to a homicide inquiry last week.
