NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 8/08/2016

Police divers have been brought in to search for a woman missing for more than a week from her Waikato farm.

Kim Louise Richmond, 42, who has a hearing disability, was last seen leaving her Wharepapa South farm, near Te Awamutu, on July 31.

Helicopter searches and pleas to the public have failed to find any sign Ms Richmond or her silver Ford Ranger.

On Tuesday, police said divers would search Lake Arapuni and Lake Waipapa, both of which are part of the nearby Waikato River.

Earlier, her parents have made a plea through police.

"We are concerned about Kim. It's uncharacteristic of her to go missing without contacting her family. We would love for her to make contact with us, or if anyone has seen her or knows where she is, can they please let us know."
