A patched gang member who's been missing for more than six months has been found dead in Northland.
Kimble Moore's body was recovered yesterday from a rural bush area 20 minutes east of Kaitaia.
The 48-year-old was a patched member of the Tribesmen Motorcycle Club and has been missing since 17 March 2016.
Last month the investigation was upgraded to a homicide.
A scene examination is still underway at the site where the body was recovered but is expected to be completed later this evening.
