Searchers looking for missing Orewa man Mike McClennan have found a body. 

McClennan, the 75-year-old father of former Warriors coach Brian McClennan, went missing on Wednesday last week.

Brian pleaded with members of the public to help find his father, who had dementia.

On Tuesday night, police confirmed that the body of a man was found in dense bush near Hatfields Beach.

Although there has not yet been a formal identification process, police believe it is that of McClennan. 

The matter has been referred to the Coroner. 

He was being cared for in Orewa's Milton Court Rest Home and was last seen walking along the Hibiscus Coast Highway.

Police and the McClennan family would like to thank the community for their support during the search period.
