Wellington Police are seeking the whereabouts of a woman who failed to surrender herself to prison after being sentenced.

Demelza Mills was convicted on methamphetamine charges and sentenced in the Wellington District Court on April 5, but she didn't surrender herself to Arohata Prison.

She is a 37-year-old Caucasian female of solid build, approximately 170cm tall, currently with black dyed shoulder-length hair.

Her partner has now been arrested and police have recovered the vehicle she had been using.

Police now believe she may be back in the Wellington area and becoming desperate for assistance. They have issued a warning that anyone identified as having providing assistance to Mills will be prosecuted.

Information can be passed anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, or by phoning 04 802 3605.
