Police increasingly concerned for backpacker missing in New Zealand

A YOUNG woman from Wickford has gone missing whilst travelling in New Zealand.

Missing British backpacker Grace Millane was last seen on Victoria Street at around 7.15pm Saturday.

She was due to stay at the hostel until 8 December before travelling to a different part of the country, but has not been seen at the hostel in days.

Her family in the United Kingdom raised the alarm on Monday and Detective Inspector Scott Beard said her disappearance was "out of character".

In the past 24 hours, police have been piecing together Grace's last known movements, who she has associated with and the circumstances of her disappearance.

"Grace has been missing for 5 days", her brother Michael Millane posted on Facebook on Tuesday. "Please share and contact if you have any information regarding her whereabouts".

She was last seen in Auckland.

"It's important that anyone who recognises Grace from this photo or saw her on Saturday night contacts Police immediately on 09 302 6970".

Millane had reportedly been staying at Base Backpackers in Auckland.

Various sightings of Millane have her last wearing a black top, blue jeans and red sneakers.

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

Michael said the family are finding the uncertainty extremely hard.

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

"It's really out of character for her to go this long without letting us know she is OK".

During that time she had been in touch with her family daily through WhatsApp. She's approximately 5ft 6in (168cm) in height, and 58kg.

It is also working with the New Zealand Police to find Grace, he said.

Grace Millane had been in New Zealand for about two weeks.

British High Commission Wellington consular manager Tony McLeod said the commission was aware of reports of a missing British national.

"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", McLeod said.

Base Backpackers declined to comment to the Herald on Wednesday.
