Police earlier appealed to anyone who saw or heard anything unusual in the Waipapa Landing area between May 12 and 22 to call 105, quoting file number 220523/0760.
Police also wanted to hear from anyone with information about a silver Toyota Estima van in the area between those same dates.
Information can also be passed to Crime Stoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
The Advocate understands the woman's vehicle had been parked near Cherry Park House, an art centre beside Waipapa River, for several days before the car was cordoned off with police tape and later removed.
A rāhui placed on the area by local hapū Ngāti Rēhia has since lapsed.
