She is due to appear in the Waitākere District Court this afternoon.

Over the past week, three other people have been arrested and charged in Auckland and Northland in relation to this case.

Anyone with information about Reihana, who also goes by the name Hone Hawira, is asked to contact the police and not approach the man.
