A missing Waikato woman has been found in Tauranga.

Waikato Police were looking for 68-year-old Joan Gringley who had been reported missing from her rest home in Hamilton.

Miss Gringley was last seen on October11, when she told staff she was going out and would return on October 13 or 14.

She was found in Tauranga October 24.

It was not uncommon for the 68-year-old to return later than expected, but she had never been missing as long as this period of time.
