Missing tourist: 'The longer this goes on, the more worrying it is'

Missing tourist: 'The longer this goes on, the more worrying it is'”

Grace Millane, 22, had been backpacking around the country and was last seen in Auckland on Saturday night.

Detective Inspector Scott Beard said officers had spent the past 24 hours trying to piece together her last known movements, who she has associated with and the circumstances of her disappearance.

Police gave out a description of the young woman, as well as details about the last confirmed sighting of her.

The father of a British tourist missing in Auckland is flying to New Zealand in a bid to find her.

Mr Millane said she graduated from the University of Lincoln in September and planned to travel around the world.

Mr Beard said none of her roommates at the backpackers were with her on Saturday evening and there was sufficient evidence to suggest she was going to go back to the hostel to collect the items she had there.

Ms Millane is about 5ft 6in tall with brown hair and brown eyes.

The radio silence was "unusual" for Grace, Declan Millane said.

"The longer this goes on the more concerning it is", Beard said.

She was seen on Victoria St, in downtown Auckland, about 7pm.

They became anxious when she failed to contact them on her birthday...

Earlier today, her brother expressed the family's concern for Grace.

Before heading to New Zealand, she was in an organised group heading through South America for six weeks.

"I looked at the photo [of Millane] and I was quite adamant I had seen that girl", she said.

While she was travelling alone, Michael Millane said she had made a lot of friends.

Her family, who said they spoke to her "most days", became concerned when she failed to reply to birthday messages on Sunday.

Thousands of people have shared the post.

British High Commission Wellington consular manager Tony McLeod said the commission was aware of reports of a missing British national.

She was wearing a black dress and what was believed to be white Converse trainers.

"We are working closely with her family at this time and a number of Police staff are now working on this matter".

"This is particularly out of character, especially as it was her 22nd birthday on Sunday".

Base Backpackers were approached by Stuffon Wednesday but declined to comment.
