The car belonging to a missing Twizel man has been found in a nearby canal.
David Fountain was last seen leaving the Top Hut Hotel in Twizel about 1am on Sunday after a night out with a group of workmates.
His grey Nissan Primera was discovered in the Pukaki Ohau Canal last night, after a diving team arrived from Wellington, police said.
The 42-year-old’s colleagues and family contacted police when he failed to show up for work on Sunday morning.
The divers will continue searching the canal today.
Police say they will continue to seek sightings of Mr Fountain. NZN
