Grace Millane murder: New Zealand police search 'location of interest'

A “location of interest” has been identified by detectives investigating the murder of British backpacker Grace Millane in New Zealand.

Auckland city police Det Insp Scott Beard said a scene examination was under way at a bush area on Scenic Drive, a countryside road on the city’s outskirts.

A missing-person search took a tragic turn on Saturday when investigators announced they believed the 22-year-old, who was last seen alive on 1 December, had been murdered.

A 26-year-old man has been charged and police had been looking into the movements of a vehicle around the time Millane disappeared.

“Police investigating the murder of English tourist Grace Millane have identified a location of interest,” Beard said in a statement.

“This is a methodical and slow process and is expected to take all day. At this stage we are not able to confirm whether Grace has been located at this site.”

Millane, from Essex, was on a year-long round-the-world trip after graduating from university. She had arrived in New Zealand on 20 November, following six weeks in South America.

Millane’s father, David, arrived in Auckland on Friday morning, issuing an emotional plea for the public to come forward with any information relating to his daughter.
