A body has been found in Woodhill Forest at Muriwai, northwest of Auckland.

Police say a member of the public found the body on Wednesday night and officers remain at the scene.

Earlier this month police were searching the Woodhill Forest area for missing 21-year-old Carissa Avison.

She was last seen leaving her home on Dockside Lane in Auckland Central on the morning of January 26 and was given a ride to Muriwai, on Auckland's west coast.

Police say they have yet to formally identify the body.
