A man who went missing in Ellerslie on Wednesday has been safely reunited with his family. 

Fuqi Kan, 67, went missing from Main Highway in Ellerslie at around 4pm.

Police said Mr Kan often goes on walks, but that he's unfamiliar with the Auckland area as he's only been in the country for around a month and may have gotten lost.

Police have thanked everyone who assisted in the search.
