Hunters found safe and well

LSAR Hunters found safe and well

"Two hunters in Canterbury have been found safe and well on the banks of the Waimakariri River.

A search and rescue operation was launched this afternoon after the pair failed to return from an overnight deer stalking trip.

Head of the search Sergeant Peter Sommerfield says a helicopter spotted the wreckage of their boat in the river, and later found the men and their dogs on the banks of the Waimakariri River.

He says the men were found around 40-kilometres upstream from the Waimakariri Gorge.
