An Indian engineering student, who went missing just months after arriving in Australia, has been found in northwest New South wales.

Abhijeet Swami (22) was located by police in Tamworth last night after a five-day hunt and was reunited with his family a few hours later.

Swami was last seen about 10 am on Friday last when he left the Seven Hills home he shares with an uncle and headed for Blacktown train station on a bicycle.

Swami arrived in Australia to study engineering at TAFE four months ago.

Reports said he was not carrying a mobile phone when he went missing and had just $50 cash in his pocket and about $75 in his bank account.
