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

Cooper, 62, was last seen by his family about 1.30pm last Thursday at his North Shore home when he went outside to remove items from his car and never returned. 

"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 well-being.

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

Last week, police search and recue staff undertook a ground search in the surrounding area. 

The Eagle helicopter has also been searching for Cooper.

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

Cooper has been described as a European male 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.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen Cooper or who has information about where he is to contact North Shore Police on (09) 477 5000 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
