"Upper Hutt rafters found"
Two rafters who went missing on the Hutt River have been found fit and well.
Police were contacted last night at 8.41pm when a party of nine people on inflatable rafts got into difficulty while on a private trip.
The missing pair had got out of the water and had followed a track overnight to a car park, where they were met by a Police unit this morning.
Police would like to thank the rescue helicopter crew, Wellington LandSAR and community rescue and response groups for their invaluable support.
