The search for a missing kayaker in the Bay of Plenty is continuing tonight.

Police, along with land and water-based search and rescue teams are continuing to search the Kaituna River bank for a missing kayaker.

The kayaker, a 17-year-old man, was last seen by a friend downstream from the Okere Falls.

Police say the control gates to Okere Falls are now closed and the river level is dropping.

"The river level tomorrow will be extremely low.

"The search teams will resume again tomorrow if they do not locate the missing kayaker tonight."
