2 climbers overdue in Fiordland

Low cloud has delayed an air search for two missing climbers in Fiordland, Lisa Simone Auer - an Australian woman based in Wanaka, and her male companion, thought to be from the UK.

It is thought that these experienced mountaineers were expected to return from climbing Mount Tutoko near Te Anau on Tuesday.

An Invercargill based Alpine Cliff rescue team is preparing to begin searching when the weather clears.
