Update into missing English tourist Grace Millane

"Update in investigation into missing English tourist Grace Millane"

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

The investigation into the disappearance of English tourist Grace Millane is progressing rapidly.

Since she was first reported missing on Wednesday, we have made multiple enquiries as we continue the search for Grace.

As part of our investigation we have reviewed hours and hours of CCTV footage and this will continue throughout the weekend.

We now have the last known sighting of Grace at 9.41pm at the Citylife Hotel, on Saturday 1 December with a male companion.

Police have identified this man and he has been spoken to.

Through our investigations we have also identified a location of interest - an apartment in the Citylife hotel in Queen Street.

We are conducting a scene examination at this address.

I understand there will be lots of questions about what we are doing at the Citylife and exactly why we are there, however this is an ongoing investigation and I am not able to discuss this aspect further at this point in time.

Grace is a much-loved daughter, sister and friend.

It has now been six days since Grace was last seen.

At this point, we hold grave fears for her safety.

The investigation will continue throughout the weekend.

Anyone who was at the Citylife hotel who can provide any information to Police should call the investigation team on 0800 676 255.

The 0800 number is 0800 676 255.
