"Police appeal for sightings of missing woman Grace Millane"

Please attribute to Detective Inspector Scott Beard, Auckland City Police:

Police are continuing to investigate the disappearance of missing 22-year-old English tourist Grace Millane.

On Wednesday, Police received a missing person’s report regarding the English national, who is currently visiting New Zealand on holiday.

Grace is a 22-year-old European woman with brown hair and brown eyes.

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

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.

At this stage, Grace was last sighted around 7pm on Saturday 1 December on Victoria Street, Auckland CBD.

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

Detective Inspector Scott Beard says Grace had not been in contact with her family for a number of days.

“This is particularly out of character, especially as it was her 22nd birthday on Sunday.

“We are working closely with her family at this time and a number of Police staff are currently working on this matter.”

Police are appealing for anyone who may have seen Grace on the night of Saturday 1 December or may have information on her whereabouts to contact Police on (09) 302 6970.

ENDS.
