Chances of finding missing French teen alive 'becoming more slim'

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours. It's now been a month since anyone has seen or heard from 18-year-old French exchange student Eloi Jean Rolland. He was last seen on CCTV at the Britomart Train Station on March 7, where he caught a train to New Lynn and then walked to Piha Rd, near the intersection of Scenic Drive.
Police say the chances of finding him alive are "sadly becoming more slim".
Search and rescue teams have covered a wide area, including bush, walking tracks, nearby beaches and waterfalls, yet no evidence had been found.
Speaking from Paris, Rolland's sister Aurore said her family had to remain hopeful.
"Our hope is that the situation comes to an end. We need an answer. Not knowing is worse than anything."

Wood stain and Varnish.

Pauline from Windsor Park

Hi,

My beautiful dining table has the wax and pine oil builtup, and I have tried with my limited knowledge to remove it but in vain.

I may have to sand it and then stain, varnish it.

Does anyone of you have a spare to share. I can return the remaining that I haven't used.

Suggestions are welcome!

Cheers
Pauline

Police end physical search for missing French teen Eloi Rolland

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours.
Police say they have exhausted all leads for finding Eloi Rolland, 18, who has been missing from Auckland for almost four months.
The teen, who has limited English, has not been seen since he was captured on CCTV at the Britomart train station on March 7, where he caught a train to New Lynn's Fruitvale Rd station. It's understood he was in the vicinity of Piha Rd and Scenic Drive at 9.18am, but this is where the trail ends.
After more than 1600 hours searching for Rolland, police ended the physical search in May, pending reports of new information or evidence.
Rolland's sister, Aurore Rolland, told Stuff the family were "really sad" the search had been suspended.
"We [are at] the point where we are waiting for a miracle. We believe [he] is not dead in the sea at Piha Beach. Things need to be done, even if we have to search during our entire life."
