Fears grow for young British woman missing in New Zealand


There is "no evidence of foul play" in the case of a British backpacker who has gone missing in Auckland, police say.

Grace Millane, 22, from Wickford, travelled to Auckland two weeks ago and had been in regular contact with her family via social media.

Usually she kept in daily contact with her family through the messaging service WhatsApp.

Grace Millane has been missing for a week. "Please share and contact if you have any information regarding her whereabouts".

Members of the public have reported several sightings but they remain unconfirmed, according to police.

"I looked at the photo [of Millane] and I was quite adamant I had seen that girl", she said.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen her or who knows where she is to get in touch.

"We tried ringing up the hostel, which is the Base Backpackers in Auckland, which were very helpful trying to track her down", her brother said.

Various sightings have her wearing either black top, blues jeans and red sneakers, or a black dress with white shoes.

Prior to that she had been part of an organised group heading through South America for six weeks. He said they were waiting for the British banks to update them on when Grace Millane's credit cards were last used.

She approximately 5ft 6in (168cm) in height, and 58 kg.

Michael said the family are finding the uncertainty extremely hard.

"Last time we spoke to her she was in good spirits and was enjoying herself".

However she was travelling alone when she came to New Zealand about two weeks ago.

Tony McLeod, consular manager at the British High Commission in Wellington, said the commission were providing consular assistance to the family back in the UK.

He said: "We are working with the family in the United Kingdom and New Zealand Police in relation to reports of a missing British national in New Zealand".

Base Backpackers were approached by Stuffon Wednesday but declined to comment.
