Police increasingly concerned for backpacker missing in New Zealand

Police increasingly concerned for backpacker missing in New Zealand

But the 22-year-old was last in contact with her family the day before her birthday, on Sunday, and concerns for her safety are now mounting.

Detective Inspector Scott Beard this afternoon said her disappearance was "out of character", after her family in the United Kingdom raised the alarm on Monday.

They became anxious when she failed to contact them on her birthday...

"Grace has been missing for five days", wrote her brother Michael Millane on Facebook on Tuesday night.

"At this stage, Grace was last sighted around 7pm on Saturday, 1 December, on Victoria Street, Auckland CBD". "Please share and contact if you have any information regarding her whereabouts".

"It was what she wanted - she wanted to see the world", Michael said.

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

Mr Beard said none of her roommates at the backpackers were with her on Saturday evening and there was sufficient evidence to suggest she was going to go back to the hostel to collect the items she had there.

He says at the time she was wearing a black dress with white Converse shoes.

Fortnite submarine location: where to dance on top of a submarine
As with season 6, there are three free challenges each week, but your dance on top of a submarine is of the four Battle Pass ones. There isn't a game that has changed as much as Fortnite and you really feel it when you sit down and look back at past seasons.

Ms Millane left the United Kingdom six weeks ago to travel the world after finishing university.

The radio silence was "unusual" for Grace, Declan Millane said.

"Being out of contact with family for this long is especially out of character for her".

She is about 5ft 6in tall with brown hair and brown eyes.

Her family said she had then meant to go to Australia.

David Millane spoke to media on Friday after arriving in New Zealand.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We are in contact with New Zealand police and providing consular support after a British woman was reported missing in Auckland".

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

Det Insp Scott Beard, of Auckland City Police, said more than 20 staff were working on the case.
