An Auckland teenager missing for more than a week has been found.

Taila Benfell, 14, had not been seen since Tuesday last week in the West Auckland suburb of Green Bay.

"Police would like to thank members of the public for their assistance in locating her," police said in a statement this morning.

Waitemata Detective Sergeant Kelly Farrant earlier said police had serious concerns after extensive inquiries to find Taila had been unsuccessful.
