There are growing concerns for 50-year-old Michelle Simpson's safety.

She was last seen walking along Wairere Road in Waitakere yesterday morning.

Police said Ms Simpson is likely to be confused and disoriented.

A wide ground search has been done in the area, which includes dense bush, and there has also been an aerial search.

The police are urging locals to check their security camera footage, sheds, backyards, and any area where someone may seek shelter.
