She was reported missing on Thursday night when she failed to return after setting out in the morning, police say.

Her car was found on Friday morning with a note saying she'd gone to Holly Hut, on the northern side of the mountain.

A search and rescue team is heading to the hut, a police spokeswoman says.

The MetService has issued a severe weather watch for the North Island, with a heavy rain warning also issued for Taranaki on Thursday.
