The mystery identity of the teenager found unconscious in Remuera last night has been solved, and his family are now at his hospital bedside.

The 17-year-old was unresponsive when he was discovered on Peach Pde, and had no identification on him.

In a desperate bid to find out who the young man was, police released images of his watch, jacket and shoes hoping someone would recognise the belongings.

The teenager is in an induced coma in hospital and police are trying to figure out what happened to him.

They'd like to speak to anyone who was in the area between the hours of 5pm and 9pm yesterday, or who might be able to assist with the investigation.
