Out of character: Grace Millane failed to reply to birthday messages

Missing British backpacker Grace Millane was last seen on Victoria Street at around 7.15pm Saturday.

Grace is a 22-year-old European woman with brown hair and brown eyes. "The concern is that the family have not heard from her and when her 22nd birthday was on 2 December, that's when you'd expect to hear or for them to contact her so that's why there's concern".

They became anxious when she failed to reply to birthday messages on Sunday.

"The Father is due to arrive in New Zealand to aid with Police efforts, which should be a big help as he knows more about Grace and her personality".

Ms Millane is said to have been in New Zealand for about two weeks, and was staying at a backpackers' hostel in Auckland city centre.

"It has now been six days since Grace was last seen", Beard said.

He says at the time she was wearing a black dress with white Converse shoes.

"Being out of contact with family for this long is especially out of character for her".

Det Insp Beard confirmed she had made plans after that to travel to other parts of New Zealand.

There are more than 20 staff working on her case, he added. She is approximately 5ft 6in (168cm) in height and 58kg.

The family put the call out there because they were anxious for her safety and wanted "to make sure she's alright".

Grace Millane had been in New Zealand for about two weeks. He said they were waiting for the British banks to update them on when Grace Millane's credit cards were last used.

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

A spokesman for the Foreign Office said: "We are providing consular support to the family in the United Kingdom, and working with the New Zealand Police in relation to reports of a missing British national in New Zealand".

Base Backpackers declined to comment.
