New Zealand Land Search and Rescue has located a body believed to be that of Bert Kuiti, a Marlborough man reported missing several days ago.

Police have been leading a search effort for Mr Kuiti, 38, since he was reported missing by his family earlier this week.

He was last seen on Thursday, November 16.

LandSAR located a body on Sunday near the carpark at the end of Maungatapu Rd in the Pelorus area between Blenheim and Nelson.

Mr Kuiti's car was found crashed close by on Friday.

Police have notified Mr Kuiti's family, and his death has been referred to the coroner.
