A search and rescue team has located Sheree Tuahuru, who was reported missing in the north end of the Kaimais, safe and well.
Ms Tuahuru was located near the Waitawheta Hut.
Sgt Craig Madden said the successful outcome of this search was due to the fact the missing party had left her trip intentions with family.
On Monday, Sheree Tuahuru of Katikati told her partner she was going to walk the Ananui Falls off Woodland Rd.
She began her walk at about 11am, and had not returned by Tuesday morning.
Sergeant Madden said anyone entering the bush needed to make sure they don't exceed their own capabilities, and not to rely on maps printed off the internet or a cellphone as a means of navigation.
