A police search has found a 65-year-old man dead following a jet boating incident at Lake Wanaka.
Murray Rivers was one of three onboard the boat when it hit a gravel bar on Sunday night, throwing the other two into the water.
Police say the boat was located at 3am this morning, but there was no sign of Mr Rivers.
A subsequent search found the man snagged below the surface by a willow tree about 150 metres from the boat.
Police say it appears the men weren't wearing life jackets.
