WELLINGTON, New Zealand – The New Zealand police say they believe a 22-year-old British tourist who has been missing for a week has been murdered and is interrogating a man in connection with his disappearance.
Grace Millane was on a one-year scheduled trip abroad started in Peru. She arrived in New Zealand last month and was last seen on December 1, entering a hotel in the center of Auckland with a 26-year-old man.
Police say they took that man to the Auckland police station on Saturday afternoon to question him.
Inspector Scott Beard said he told Millane's devastated father, David Millane, who this week traveled from Britain, that they believe Millane was killed.
Beard says they do not know where Millane's body is but they are determined to find it and return it to his family.
