A helicopter reportedly registered to a business entity owned by AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has been sighted combing the waters near Tauranga, New Zealand where a police and naval diver search for a missing 23 year-old boater had been suspended after a week. Three other men accompanying Shaun Hogarth managed to make it to shore safely after the dingy they were in swamped on October 16. A police official announced the official search was being discontinued because authorities believe there is no chance Hogarth will be found alive. The MD 520N chopper registered to Phil Rudd Extreme Transport Limited is apparently being used in a private search being coordinated by the missing man's family. The $2.5 million helicopter bears the name of Phil's Place, a restaurant Rudd owns.
