Search teams at Piha are continuing to look for missing Auckland woman Iraena Asher and a group of her family are also working with the search teams.

O/C Search, Sergeant Mark Fergus says, "The family have already been searching for Iraena and today have been assigned areas to check so are working with the search teams."

Searchers include Search and Rescue Volunteers, Police, ARC Park Rangers and the Air Force.

Uniform staff are also going door to door this morning talking with Piha residents.

O/C of the missing person inquiry, Det/S/Sgt John Sutton says, "Property searches have already been done in the past two days but the aim of the area canvas by staff is to find out any more information that could assist the inquiry team as part of the search for Iraena."

Iraena Asher is aged 25. She is Maori/Pakeha with blue/green eyes, dark brown hair and weighs about 65 kg.

There will be a media conference at the Piha Surf Club at 2pm this afternoon. Iraena's family will be there and will speak to the media but they ask that apart from this opportunity they are granted privacy.
