Search and rescue teams looking for missing Christchurch man Mark William Robinson recovered a body in scrub off Dry Weather Rd, between Glenhope and Tapawera, about 10pm yesterday.

A formal identification is yet to be completed, but police believe the person recovered fits the description of the missing man.

Mr Robinson, 37, has not been seen since last Friday morning, when he told his partner he was going to work.

His gold Mazda MX5 convertible was found on Sunday night on Dry Weather Rd. The vehicle was in a culvert and was not able to be driven.

Police said bank records and closed-circuit television footage showed Mr Robinson drove to Nelson on Friday and was in the city at 1.45pm.

It was likely he then headed back toward Murchison.
