The search for a teenager sweeping rocks from the dangerous Raglan fishery will resume this morning.
A police spokesman said the search teams would set off at 10 am to coincide with the tide at low tide and focus on the shoreline on both sides of Papanui Point.
The search includes members of the police and coastal search and rescue team, and Raglan Surf Club patrols.
At this stage, it was expected that the search would continue until the outflow.
The police were warned yesterday at 13:30, when the 17-year-old was dragged into the water at Papanui Point in Ruapuke.
The teenager was with three other people.
