Police are appealing for the public's help in finding a 16 year old girl who has been missing from her Rotorua home since last week.

Maxine Mane was last seen on 17 June.

Police say she has left home with a sports bag, all her clothes and a blanket and hasn't been in touch with her family.

She's of Maori descent with long brown hair, about 160 centimetres tall, of medium build and sometimes wears glasses.

Police say the girl moved to Rotorua from Auckland in January and isn't very familiar with the Rotorua area.
