From Morning Report, 8:19 am on 6 December 2018

New Zealand Police are searching for British backpacker Grace Millane, who has been missing for five days. Ms Millane, a 22-year-old from Essex, was last seen by roommates at an Auckland hostel on Saturday. It was Ms Millane's birthday on Sunday, and her family in the UK began to worry on Monday evening when they'd had no contact from her, and the messages they'd sent to her hadn't been read. RNZ's Paloma Migone spoke to Ms Millane's brother Michael Millane.
