The police dive squad will search the Buller River on Sunday afternoon where a car was spotted in the water.

Witnesses reported the car went into the West Coast river about 4:50pm on Saturday, and it's not known how many people were in it or if they got out of it.

No people were found in an initial search on Saturday evening.

The police dive squad will search the area on Sunday afternoon, a police spokeswoman says.
