MISSING: Arthur Eddie Cooper.

Search and rescue teams will continue to hunt for missing North Shore man Arthur Eddie Cooper today.

Cooper, 62, was last seen by his family about 1.30pm last Thursday at his Birkdale home when he went outside to remove items from his car.

"His family are by now beside themselves," Detective Senior Sergeant Megan Goldie said yesterday. 

"He has no money on him and no phone."

Police said the disappearance was "out of character" and they were concerned for his safety and wellbeing.

At this stage, police have not found any evidence of foul play.

Last week, police search and rescue staff searched the surrounding area and the Eagle helicopter has also been involved. 

Search and rescue teams will return to the area near Birkdale today.

Cooper is described as a European man of thin build and around 178m tall. At the time of his disappearance he was wearing a navy blue button-up collared shirt with short sleeves, blue jeans, a faded blue sun hat and sneakers. He may also have a black sweatshirt on him.

Anyone who has seen Cooper or has information about his whereabouts can contact North Shore Police on 09 477 5000 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
