Police said Richard Michael Shaw, 44, was last seen on 6 June.

A car belonging to the Pukemoremore local was seen a week later in a carpark at the end of Grey Road, near the Pirongia Lodge, and reported to police.

Waikato police and Search and Rescue have been searching the tracks around the carpark.

Sergeant Vince Ranger said police believed he was alone and were keen to hear from anyone who may have seen someone in the Mount Pirongia area.

He is described as about 180cm tall, of medium build with short, light-coloured hair.
