A police helicopter is searching for a jet boat that has got into trouble on the Kawerau river in north-west Otago.
Queenstown police are investigating after a witness called at 10.45pm to say the boat had hit the riverbank several times.
There is as yet no indication how many passengers are on board the boat, or if they are in distress.
