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.
