Kim Louise Richmond was last seen heading south from her Wharepapa South farm in a silver Ford Ranger utility.

Detective Senior Sergeant Ross Patterson said the team were searching to eliminate the possibility Ms Richmond and her vehicle may have gone into Lake Arapuni or Lake Waipapa.

He said there had been no sightings of the 42-year-old since the early hours of 31 July.
