A woman last seen riding her bike near a forest in Northland early this morning has been found.

The 65-year-old was reported missing earlier this evening after she failed to come home after going for a bike ride not far from her Kerikeri home at about 9am today.

Police launched a search in the Waitangi Forest tonight.

The area - which has a walking and bike track running through - was where she was last seen. Authorities have since released a statement saying she has been found.


"Her condition is good,'' police said.

A northern police communications spokesman said he could not say what circumstances the woman was found in or if she had been looked at by medical staff.
