After a missing person report was filed, New Zealand police released an image of Ms Millane at a late night casino in Auckland.

Grace Millane, from Wickford in Essex, had been in regular contact with family at home through the messaging app WhatsApp after she flew to Auckland a fortnight ago....

Her family became concerned when she did not respond to birthday messages on Sunday, New Zealand Herald reported.

She had been in nearly daily contact with her family through social media and WhatsApp messages.

More than 37,000 people have shared a "missing" poster Mr Millane put on Facebook on Tuesday night, and the family has now set up a new page - Help Find Grace. "Please share and contact if you have any information regarding her whereabouts".

Newstalk ZB reporter Chelsea Daniels attended the Police press conference and told Larry Williams the longer it carries on without any sightings, the more worrying it is.

"I looked at the photo [of Millane] and I was quite adamant I had seen that girl", she said. She was spotted on CCTV at 5.30pm arriving at the Base Backpacker hostel in Auckland.

Before coming to New Zealand she travelled as part of an organised group through South America for six weeks.

"Where she was standing, it was really weird and she was by herself, nobody around just a girl on her own", she said.

Why have seals been getting eels stuck up their noses?
This whole situation could just be a "weird anomaly" or a "crazy statistical quirk, and we may never see it again", he added. If you were a Hawaiian monk seal, you'd have to contend with THIS: getting a god damn EEL stuck in your GOD DAMN NOSE.

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

Ms Millane's brother Michael said: "We are really, really anxious and concerned about Grace".

She approximately 5ft 6in (168cm) in height, and 58 kg. He said they were waiting for the British banks to update them on when Grace Millane's credit cards were last used.

Her brother was not sure of her travel plans in New Zealand, but he knew she had a flexible itinerary booked to travel around most of the country.

She was just sight-seeing and travelling around New Zealand.

Base Backpackers declined to comment to the Herald on Wednesday.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: "We are in contact with New Zealand police and providing consular support after a British woman was reported missing in Auckland".

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