MISSING: Sarah Pepa

An Auckland teenager who was sought by police has been found safe. 

Police had been looking for 17-year-old Jocelyn Rainham, also known as Jocelyn Winiata. She hadn't been seen by friends or family since the early hours of yesterday morning.

The Glen Innes teen was thought to have been in the company of an alleged criminal, Moses Tapine, but police say Tapine has also been located. 

Meanwhile, police are also looking for Sarah Pepa, who has been missing from her Mt Wellington home for a week.

Sarah is a 15-year-old Polynesian of medium build and has been a Pakuranga College pupil.

Police and family said they were concerned for her wellbeing because of her age and vulnerability.

Anyone who knows where Sarah is should contact the Auckland Police on 09 302 6400 or Constable Dale Blyde of the Glen Innes Police on 09 213 8575.
