A search and rescue was initiated after a surfer failed to return at a Northland beach.

The incident was reported by bystanders on Ahipara Beach at around 2.40 pm this afternoon.

Reports indicated that a person had been caught in a rip within the bay.

Two surf IRBs, one Fire and Emergency Unit and three Police units took part in the search to find the person.

A Helicopter was sent to the area to search from above.

The search for the person was later suspended after failing to locate anyone missing. It was put on hold with a pending status.
