A woman who'd been missing in the bush near Waipu north of Auckland has been found safe and well.

Police say a search started when her family became concerned for her safety after she left her home in the Waipu Cove area on Thursday night.

Police Search and Rescue managed to contact the woman on her cell phone, and kept in touch with her through the night until she was located late Friday morning and re-united with her family.
