    Jet boater search on West Coast temporarily called off due to river conditions

    The search for a jet boater on the South Island's West Coast has been temporarily called off because of river conditions


    Police have named the man - who has been missing since Friday afternoon - as 29-year-old Daniel McLellan-Skeggs, from Christchurch.

    The Dive Squad has been scouring the Taramakau River since the jetboat flipped carrying two people.

    The other occupant was safely rescued.

    Police say there is no active search today and it will be reassessed tomorrow.
