A British backpacker who went missing in New Zealand a day before her birthday was last seen walking into a hostel.

Grace Millane, 22, had been backpacking around the country and was last seen in Auckland on Saturday night.

She has not returned to her Auckland hostel in several days. "The concern is that the family have not heard from her and when her 22nd birthday was on 2 December, that's when you'd expect to hear or for them to contact her so that's why there's concern".

She had previously been in "constant contact" with her family using messaging service 'WhatsApp'.

Officers have said they are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of Grace Millane, who turned 22 on Sunday.

Relatives have shared appeals for information on Facebook, and DI Beard said more than 20 investigators were combing through CCTV footage to track Ms Millane's last movements after a number of unconfirmed sightings had been reported.

"It was what she wanted - she wanted to see the world", Michael said.

"It's important that anyone who recognises Grace from this photo or saw her on Saturday night contacts Police immediately".

Various sightings have her wearing either black top, blues jeans and red sneakers, or a black dress with white shoes.

Ms Millane graduated from the University of Lincoln in September, as has been travelling alone in New Zealand following a six-week group trip to South America.

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

"Last time we spoke to her she was in good spirits and was enjoying herself". She is approximately 5ft 6in (168cm) in height and 58kg.

Her family said she had then meant to go to Australia.

Base Backpackers declined to comment.

Mr Beard said police found some of Ms Millane's items at the backpackers she was staying at in the Auckland CBD but wouldn't divulge what the contents were.

On Wednesday, police received a missing person's report regarding the English national, who is now visiting New Zealand on holiday.
