Police are still appealing for information on an overdue British tramper who has not been seen for more than a week.

Tourist Andy Wyatt, believed to be about 24-years-old, was walking the Te Araroa Trail between Nelson Lakes and Boyle River, near the Lewis Pass.

He was last seen at Blue Lake in Nelson Lakes National Park about December 13.

Wyatt was due to pick up a food package at Boyle settlement near the Lewis Pass on Monday, but did not arrive.

Senior constable Phil Simmonds said there had been a number of unconfirmed sightings of Wyatt, but he was "still unaccounted for".

The search had been scaled back after police and Land Search and Rescue, along with a helicopter, checked the huts and tracks in the area with no sign of Wyatt.

Wyatt might have left the area without contacting the food pick-up centre.

Anyone with further information is asked to contact Christchurch police on 03 363 7400 urgently.
