A BRITISH backpacker missing in New Zealand since last weekend was murdered, police say.
Police said they were questioning a man, 26, about the suspected slaying of Grace Millane, 22, and a vehicle of interest had been secured.
“Sadly the evidence we have gathered to this point of the inquiry has established that this is a homicide,” Det-Insp. Scott Beard said.
“We still do not know where Grace is. We are determined to . . . return her to her family.”
