Update on Grace Millane Investigation - Dec 8

"Update on Grace Millane Investigation"

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

Police investigating the disappearance of English tourist Grace Millane are releasing photographs of her necklace and watch.

Detectives have assessed Grace’s belongings that were found at the backpackers where she was staying. Several of her belongings, including her passport are missing and Police believe it is likely that Grace has these items with her.

Grace’s watch is a pale pink Casio Baby-G.

Grace’s necklace is described as silver and round with a green stone in the middle of it.

Police would like to hear from anyone who has seen any items matching this description over the past week.

The scene examination at the Citylife hotel is continuing.

Detectives are continuing to view hundreds of hours of CCTV footage.

At this point our enquiries have not led us to any further confirmed sightings of Grace, and the last known sighting is of her entering the Citylife Hotel at 9.41pm on Saturday 1 December.

Dozens of calls have been made to the 0800 number and all of this information continues to be reviewed and assessed.

Many of these calls have been from members of the public, offering accommodation and assistance to the Millane family.

Police continue to offer support to the Millane family, both in New Zealand and in the UK.

Anyone with information about the missing items can contact 0800 676 255.
