Natasha Veltman was last seen at a house in Tutukaka, near Whangarei, just before 9am on Thursday.
The alert was raised after she failed to attend an appointment.
She is described as Pakeha, about 160cm tall and of medium to large build, and was wearing blue jeans and possibly a grey sweatshirt.
A search team was to continue looking for her on Friday.
