Father of missing tourist Grace Millane arrives in New Zealand, update from police due today

Police say missing English tourist Grace Millane's father David has arrived in New Zealand as the search for his daughter continues.

Grace, 22, was last seen on Saturday on Victoria Street in Auckland's CBD.

She failed to check in with family, which is very out of character for her, they say, and a large-scale search for her is now underway.

Police this morning said a team of 25 officers have been assigned to the case and they continue to scour through CCTV footage from around Auckland.
