Police have released video footage of missing Auckland toddler Aisling Symes in an effort to jog people's memories of possible sightings.

The two-year-old was with her parents at a property on Longburn Road in the suburb of Henderson when she disappeared about 5.30pm on Monday 5 October.

The officer in charge of the investigation, Inspector Gary Davey, says the footage is heartbreaking under the circumstances, but police feel it humanises the toddler more than a photograph could.

He says the trauma over the disappearance of their daughter is taking its toll on the Symes family and they are asking for privacy.
