Police have found the body of a man in the cab of a truck submerged in a river near Taihape.
They've been searching for the 47-year-old after he was reported missing by his wife when he failed to return to Taihape from Hawke's Bay last night.
The submerged truck was discovered downstream from the Springvale Bridge above the Moawhango River earlier this morning by another truck driver.
Inspector Steve Mastrovich says the body has now been recovered.
He says they're now attempting to salvage the truck from the river.
