As stated by Sergeant Vince Ranger:
The search for a fisherman missing near Tanners Point in the Bay of Plenty is continuing.
The fisherman, 52-year-old Kelly David Rae, fell from a boat on Monday 24 June.
The Police National Dive Squad assisted the search team for three days last week but unfortunately did not locate Mr Rae.
Sadly, given the time that Mr Rae has been missing, Police do not believe he has survived. The matter will therefore be referred to the Coroner.
