Title: Body On Waihi Beach Not Linked To Harbour Search, Death Not Believed Suspicious
Waikato Police say the body of a person found at Waihi Beach this afternoon is not that of a man who is the subject of an extensive air, land and sea search in the inner Tauranga Harbour following an overnight capsizing.
Emergency services were called to Anzac Bay, Waihi Beach, shortly after 2pm after reports of a woman's body being found on the beach by a member of the public.
Ambulance staff attended the scene but the woman, believed to be aged about 77-years-old, was unable to be resolved.
Police are currently not treating the death as suspicious and the matter has been reported to the Coroner.
