A body has been found in the search for a man in the Bay of Plenty.

Police believe it's that of John 'Johnny' Mohi, who has been missing in Maketu for a week.

While formal identification is still to be completed, the search and rescue operation for Mr Mohi has been put on hold.

Mr Mohi, who suffers from dementia, was last seen on Church Rd on Saturday night last week.
