The search is continuing in a west Auckland forest for a woman who's been missing for more than a week.

Search and rescue teams are focusing on the Woodhill Forest area, near the corner of Coast and Grass Track Roads for Carissa Avison.

The 21-year-old hasn't been seen since Thursday last week.

She received a ride from Holder Place to Coast Road in Muriwai, but hasn't been seen since leaving her home in central Auckland.

Police still do not believe any foul play was involved, despite her disappearance being out of character.

She was wearing black Nike sports shoes with white soles, black leggings and a white t-shirt, was carrying a dark blue Country Road canvas duffle bag, and may have been wearing a turquoise coloured snowboarding jacket.
