Nelson Mail - - National News - Auck­land

Miss­ing back­packer Grace Mil­lane was last seen at a ho­tel in Auck­land with a man, po­lice say. The 22-year-old, from Es­sex in Bri­tain, was re­ported miss­ing on Wed­nes­day af­ter she did not re­turn to a back­pack­ers hos­tel, where she was stay­ing in cen­tral Auck­land. De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Scott Beard said yesterday af­ter­noon po­lice had gone through hours of CCTV footage and had pin­pointed the last known sight­ing of Mil­lane, at 9.41pm last Satur­day at the City Life Ho­tel. Mil­lane was ac­com­pa­nied by a man in the footage, who had been iden­ti­fied and spo­ken to, Beard said. Of­fi­cers had also iden­ti­fied a ‘‘lo­ca­tion of in­ter­est’’: an apart­ment at the City Life Ho­tel, which had been searched. ‘‘At this point we hold grave fears for her safety.’’ David Mil­lane, Grace Mil­lane’s fa­ther, ar­rived in Auck­land at 7am yesterday and was met by po­lice at the air­port.
