Police investigating the disappearance of a Rotorua woman have charged a 44-year-old woman with assault.

Michelle Hoffman-Tamm was last seen in the late afternoon of November 7 when she left her home address on her bicycle.

The woman charged with assault and is likely to face further charges when she appears at Rotorua District Court tomorrow morning, police said.

Police said their investigation this morning led them to a rural location close to State Highway 38 between Rotorua and Murupara.

Police were tonight examining the area and will also examine a house in Rotorua.

Hoffman-Tamm's bike was also located today at a third location in a Rotorua suburb.

Police want to hear from anyone who was in the area of Holland Street on November 7 and November 11 and in Victoria Street between November 11 and 12.

Police are particularly interested in a two-tone light-coloured Subaru Legacy station wagon travelling around Rotorua or between Rotorua, Whakatane and Murupara between the November 7 and 12.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Rotorua police on 07 349 9400 information can also be provided anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
