WELLINGTON (Reuters) - A dive team will be redeployed on Saturday to search for a body that is believed to be in the waters off New Zealand’s volcanic White Island that fatally erupted earlier this week, New Zealand’s Police Commissioner said.

Mike Bush said the divers could not find anybody in searches today.

“They will redeploy and it will be the New Zealand police dive team and some of the navy dive team as well,” said Bush.
