LATEST: A 15-year-old Christchurch girl missing for more than 10 days has been found.

Azaria Delia Field was reported missing on October 30 from a West Melton home.

She was in Child, Youth and Family care and had been living at the home for six years.

Senior Constable Gary Malzard said Azaria was found "safe and well" with an associate in Oxford this afternoon.

Malzard said police had been concerned for Azaria's wellbeing, given the length of time she had been away and the fact she had not made contact with her social worker.

The teenager had now been returned to CYF care, he said.

Azaria had run away previously, but this was the longest period she had been away.
