The last confirmed sighting of the 27-year-old was on Tuesday 19 March. Ms Boyce is described as tall and of thin build with blonde hair.

Her red Holden Rodeo ute was last seen between Tuesday 22 and Wednesday 23 March at Lake Chalice which is in Mount Richmond Forest Park.

"After receiving the missing person report, an intensive eight days of searching was completed but despite all search efforts no signs of Jessica have been found," Marlborough district area commander Inspector Simon Feltham said.

"There has been continued visible searching by police and Search and Rescue teams over the weekend, but we have been unable to locate Jessica."

A review of the search efforts has been undertaken today to identify areas for further investigation.

The missing person investigation will remain active and if any further lines of inquiry come to light, or areas to search, police will continue to follow up any further information that comes to hand, Mr Feltham said.
