Concerns are mounting for a North Shore woman missing for almost two days and police say they have no idea what has happened to her.

Bin Chen, better known as "Cissy", went for a walk from her Torbay home about 5.30pm on Monday and never returned.

"We are very concerned about her welfare," said Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Megan Goldie.

"We are keeping an open mind as to where she went on Monday evening but with no sightings reported so far, our concern for her welfare and wellbeing is certainly mounting."

Chen was reported missing by her distraught husband, who said she regularly walks along Long Bay beach to the end before returning home.

Search and rescue teams including the police Eagle helicopter yesterday unsuccessfully combed North Shore beaches for signs of Chen, without success.

Goldie said there was nothing "at all" to indicate what had happened and police were not working to any particular scenario. "It is a total puzzle," she said.

The area where Chen usually walked was not dangerous, but there were cliffs in the wider area, police said.

Chen is a 44-year-old Chinese woman of medium build and 1.56m tall. She was last seen wearing dark trousers - possibly blue jeans - and a white fleece top.

Police have appealed for any sightings or information on Chen's whereabouts.
