A search team has found a tramper trapped in Tarrago Forest Park, north of Wellington.
The Land Search and Rescue Team found the experienced Trumper just before 3 p.m.
The man had sent two teams to the area after leaving the capital on Sunday to complete a circuit along Panakal Ridge.
Police were using cell phones to instruct him to take refuge in McGregor’s wife’s hut while monitoring his position through their personal locator Bacon.
He says he is in good condition and will be evacuated if the weather permits.
