“Our concerns grow each day that Eloi remains missing and we urge anyone with possible sightings of Eloi since Saturday 7th March to contact Police immediately.

“We have received multiple calls from members of the public with possible sightings of Eloi in the West Auckland area and we are following up this information.

We want to thank those who have contacted us.”
