NZ police find body suspected to be missing Aussie

New Zealand police have recovered a body from the Waikato River this morning, close to where a missing Australian man was last seen 4 days ago.

38 year old tennis coach Paul Arber, from Melbourne, has not been seen since Sunday morning, when he went for a swim in the river.

He is in New Zealand visiting a group of young players in a tennis tournament.

Police say a body was found floating in the river this morning, about 2km downstream from where Mr Arber was last seen.

They are yet to confirm the identity of the body, but police say there have been no other reports of people missing in the area.
