Police appeal for sightings of missing woman Grace Millane + media advisory

Desperate search for missing tourist after 'constant contact' with family stops

Police are growing increasingly concerned about a young British woman who went missing the day before her birthday in New Zealand.

Detectives are investigating the disappearance of 22-year-old Grace Millane, who was last seen in Auckland on Saturday night.

The 22-year-old was travelling solo through the country, and staying in an Auckland hostel.

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

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

Grace Millane's current profile picture on Facebook was uploaded on November 29 - two days before she disappeared.

Her family, who live in Essex, say they have not heard from her in several days - including on her 22nd birthday on Sunday.

Detective Inspector Scott Beard, of Auckland City Police, said Ms Millane's father was on his way to New Zealand, and said her family were understandably "distraught". "Please share and contact if you have any information regarding her whereabouts".

Michael said: "She just wanted to see the world after graduating from university".

"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.

Police released a blurry image of Millane taken from a surveillance camera in which she is wearing a black dress and white sneakers.

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

Michael Millane pleaded for his sister to contact the family. He said they were waiting for the British banks to update them on when Grace Millane's credit cards were last used.

Det Insp Beard confirmed she had made plans after that to travel to other parts of New Zealand.

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

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

Base Backpackers declined to comment to the Herald on Wednesday.

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

Her family reported her missing to New Zealand Police yesterday.

Mr Beard said police found some of Ms Millane's items at the backpackers she was staying at in the Auckland CBD but wouldn't divulge what the contents were.
