Concern is mounting for a west Auckland mother and child who have not been in contact with authorities since the beginning of the month.
Toni Reihana, 41, was believed to be hiding in west Auckland, or visiting family in the Hokianga, with her three-year-old daughter Keyana.
"There is increasing concern for her welfare and the wellbeing of her daughter. Multiple enquiries have failed to locate the pair," police said in a statement.
Ms Reihana was described as Maori, 1.6 metres tall and of slim to medium build.
Keyana was described as Maori with a fair complexion and brown hair.
