© NZ Police Searchers are combing the tip of the Otago Peninsula for a woman who went missing in heavy rain and wind over the weekend.

Dunedin's Nicola Hedley, 36, went missing from an address in Harington Point around 2am on Sunday.

"Police are concerned for Nic's welfare given the heavy rain and the less than ideal conditions at the time," Sergeant Richard Panting said in a statement.

Search and rescue teams were searching Harington Point and surf lifesavers were also searching the water.

Harington Point residents were asked to check their properties, garages and out buildings.

Ms Hedly was described as of average height and build with long dark hair shaved on one side.
