Police in Auckland say 14-year-old Nigel Mansell, who has been missing for over a week, has still not been found.

The boy was last seen on 19 December by his Child Youth and Family caregiver when he was dropped off at the Mt Albert train station in Auckland.

Police say they have real concerns for the teenager's well-being because of his age.

He is believed to frequent the West Auckland area, especially Westgate Shopping Mall, but he may also make his way up to Kaitaia where his previous caregiver and family live.
