A woman and four young children who were missing for two days in a remote mountain range of New Zealand have been found safe and well.
The five – including children aged between four and nine – were dropped off for a planned one to two hour walk in the Te Urewera national park in the Bay of Plenty just after 1pm on Tuesday afternoon.
The mountain rage is located in a remote and isolated part of New Zealand, on the east coast of the North Island.
The group was reported missing just after 4pm New Zealand time on Wednesday afternoon, and a search was launched overnight in the Otamatuna Ridge.
