The man and his three young children were not seen from Saturday 11 September until 30 September when they reappeared after camping in dense bush, living in a tent inland from Kiritehere Beach.

During that time a large team led by police searched land, sea and air for 12 days.

The 34-year-old man will appear in the Te Kuiti District Court on 5 November on a charge of causing wasteful deployment of police personnel and resources.
