The search for missing Auckland woman Carissa Avison, who hasn't been seen since last week, has been suspended.

The 21-year-old was last seen leaving her home on Dockside Lane, Auckland Central, at about 8.30am on January 26, police said.

They established she was on Holder Place on the North Shore on January 26 and then received a ride to Muriwai on Auckland's west coast, arriving later in the day.

But her destination from there isn't known.

Search and rescue teams have spent the last six days searching the Woodhill Forest area for her.

Detective Senior Sergeant Iain Chapman said police the search could be resumed if any new information was presented.

"We know that Woodhill Forest is a very busy recreational area," he said.

"And we continue to ask members of the public, who may be in the area over the long weekend, to get in touch with us if they see anything that may be relevant to the investigation."
