A loyal dog named Ataahua keeps trying to return to the spot where her owner went missing.

She belongs to New Zealander Kerry Morgan who was last seen with the dog along the Waikato River on Friday.

The two were regulars in the area, and it was where the canine was found waiting alone that night.

While his shoes and hat were left on the bank, the whereabouts of the man himself is still unknown.

However, the dog refuses to give up according to the man's family, as she reportedly escaped back to the river site during a bathroom break to continue waiting for him.

A police investigation into Morgan's whereabouts is ongoing.
