    Police searching for missing British woman in Auckland

    Grace Millane, 22, arrived in New Zealand about two weeks ago and has been in constant contact with her family via messaging service WhatsApp.

    But they became alarmed when she didn't respond to birthday messages on Sunday.

    Her older brother Michael Millane said they last spoke on Thursday, November 29, and concerns for her safety were mounting.

    "She has not been back to her hostel room since [December 1]," her brother Michael Millane said.

    The young tourist had been staying at Base Backpackers on Auckland's Queen St.

    Hoping for her safe return ASAP. I was in Auckland as a backpacker myself few years ago.

    Is Grace in NZ on a Working Holiday Visa, does anyone know? Someone (with hopefully good intentions) may have offered her a job and/or a free place to stay- just my random thoughts.

    I assume she has left all or most of her belongings behind though, in her hostel room...That is not a good sign IMO.

    My daughter has backpacking Europe since May (and now in Thailand) so these cases are very close to me. I hope Grace is off on a side trip and is safely found.

    Brother of Wickford woman missing in New Zealand says lack of contact is 'out of character'

    [...]

    Grace had gone travelling after graduating from the University of Lincoln with a degree in Advertising and Marketing.

    She initially flew out to New Zealand as part of an organised group but was travelling alone at the time of her disappearance.

    Michael said: "She just wanted to see the world after graduating from university. She was just sight-seeing and travelling around New Zealand.

    "Last time we spoke to her she was in good spirits and was enjoying herself. She didn't mention any specific plans for this week.

    She has two mobile phones with her in New Zealand but calls go straight to voicemail.

    Not only did she fail to respond to any messages on her 22nd birthday on Sunday, but she also did not send her brother a message on his birthday on Tuesday.

    I always worry about people hitchhiking when someone is missing in Australia or New Zealand. There seems to be a mindset amongst young travellers that hitchhiking is safe in these countries even though young travellers know how dangerous hitchhiking is in all other parts of the world.

    So she stopped corresponding on Thursday and was seen on camera Saturday. So they have a timeline now.

    I wonder what it shows for Sunday and what belongings she left behind.

    And the same camera did not record her leaving the next day (or anytime after)? ...... Hinky!

    Red line is the street she was last seen on and the blue circle is the backpackers.
