A search is on for a 94-year-old woman who has gone missing from a retirement home in Masterton.

Masterton police constable Joe Nelley said the woman, Roma Holbrook Roberts, had wandered off from the Metlifecare retirement village this afternoon, with the last unconfirmed sighting at 3.30pm.

She was last seen heading south on Chapel St using a red walking frame, wearing black knee-high stockings, a red skirt, a white shirt with blue and green stripes and a black cardigan.

Mr Nelley said police was supporting a search and rescue team to carry out the search.

A Masterton resident said he understood searchers had been door-knocking and a helicopter was also being used in the search.
