Dog units, search and rescue teams, and police are scouring Waitarere Forest to find a young asthmatic boy who has been missing for the day.

Ten-year-old Alex Fisher disappeared from the domain near the forest in Horowhenua early this morning and despite almost a full day's search, still hasn't been found.

Alex has brown hair and was wearing a red hooded sweat shirt, blue shorts and black shoes, police say.

He could also have a green/blue puffer jacket and light grey tracksuit pants with him.
