An Auckland couple missing for more than a week after visiting family in the Bay of Plenty are "fit and well".

Te Arawa Karaitaina, 20, and Carli Pugh, 27, were found in Whakatane late yesterday afternoon.

Family last saw the couple leaving Pugh's grandfather's home in Whakatane on Sunday, November 4, in a mauve-coloured RAV4 vehicle.

It was understood they would return to their New Windsor home, but never arrived, causing family to report them missing.

Police said the couple "had lost track of the days" and hadn't contacted their family to tell them of their whereabouts.
