A university student has been found alive but suffering from exposure after going missing during heavy rain and flash flooding in the Gold Coast Hinterland last week.

Yang Chen, 26, had been walking near Gorge Falls in Tallebudgera Valley last Wednesday morning, when her male companion lost sight of her.

It followed news this morning that police divers had joined the search more than six days after she went missing.

Over the weekend, Queensland Police's PolAir had been deployed to find the Bond University student, along with officers and surf lifesavers.

The SES also conducted a search from Springbrook to Tallebudgera Valley.

Efforts were hampered by wet weather conditions, with the area drenched by more than 141 millimetres of rain in 24 hours.
