Police are continuing to search for a 28-year-old Korean man who went missing after his car left the road north of Kaiwaka early on Sunday morning (December 9).

Hyung Jun Cho left Auckland late on Saturday night to drive to his home at Ruakaka.

He did not arrive home and when he failed to turn up at work on Monday morning Police were alerted.

Mr Cho's car was located off the road down a bank 2km north of Kaiwaka late on Monday afternoon.

It was on the western side of the road about 200 metres past the end of the passing lanes.

Cellphone records show that Mr Cho was in the Kaiwaka area between 2am and 2.30am, but then his cellphone lost coverage. Police believe the vehicle accident occurred around this time.

A team of 19 Search and Rescue staff plus one dog handler thoroughly searched the area around the crash site on Monday evening.

Mr Cho's father has arrived in the country and, along with Mr Cho's friends, is
assisting Police with their inquiries.

A team of Search and Rescue personnel are carrying out a search today along the road sides between Kaiwaka and the Brynderwyn hills.

Police would like to hear from anyone who saw Mr Cho's vehicle, a white Mitsubishi Lancer, registration DME 693, driving between Wellsford and the Brynderwyn hills between the hours of 1.30am and 2.30am.

Mr Cho is described as 170cm tall or medium build with short black hair.
