Fa­ther ap­peals for in­for­ma­tion on miss­ing daugh­ter in NZ

Gulf Times - - ASIA/AUSTRALASIA -

The fa­ther of a 22-year-old Bri­tish back­packer who has been miss­ing in New Zealand since last Satur­day has ap­pealed to the pub­lic for help to find his “lovely, out­go­ing, fun-lov­ing daugh­ter.” David Mil­lane had flown to the coun­try’s big­gest city, Auck­land, where his daugh­ter Grace has last been seen.” Grace has never been out of con­tact for this amount of time and is usu­ally in daily con­tact with ei­ther her mother, my­self or her two broth­ers,” he said in a state­ment pub­lished by New Zealand po­lice yes­ter­day. “I would just like to take this op­por­tu­nity to ap­peal to any­body who has seen, spo­ken to, or come into con­tact with Grace over the last few days, to come for­ward with any de­tail, no mat­ter how small, and con­tact the in­ves­ti­ga­tion team,” he added. Po­lice said that they now hold grave fears for the English tourist who ar­rived in New Zealand two weeks ago. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion into her dis­ap­pear­ance was pro­gress­ing rapidly and po­lice have talked with a man she was seen with en­ter­ing a ho­tel on Satur­day night. He was a per­son of in­ter­est but was not in cus­tody. David Mil­lane, a wealthy prop­erty de­vel­oper from Es­sex, said he and his fam­ily were “all ex­tremely upset and it is very dif­fi­cult at this time to fully de­scribe the range of emo­tions we are all go­ing through.”

Peo­ple stage a rally against a bill to al­low more for­eign work­ers in front of par­lia­ment in Tokyo yes­ter­day. Ja­pan’s rul­ing par­ties aim to pass through par­lia­ment on a bill to bring more blue-col­lar for­eign work­ers into the coun­try.
