Belle Collaboration

We report a search for charmless hadronic decays of neutral B mesons to the final state K+K-pi(0). The results are based on a 711 fb(-1) data sample that contains 772 x 10(6) B (B) over bar pairs, and was collected at the (sic)(4S) resonance with the Belle detector at the KEKB asymmetric-energy e(+)e(-) collider. We find the first evidence for this decay with a significance of 3.5 standard deviations and measure its branching fraction as B(B-0 -> K+K-pi(0)) = [2.17 +/- 0.60(stat) +/- 0.24(syst) x 10(-6).
