Yerin An's family raised the alarm yesterday, after they hadn't heard from her for 24 hours.

The 17-year-old had last been in contact with her family when she was in Whatawhata, near Hamilton.

But police said she had been found on the track this morning, safe and well.

Te Araroa is a 3000 kilometre trail which stretches from Cape Reinga to Bluff.
