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."

Singing through lockdown

Edmund Hillary Retirement Village

Joan Swift has loved every minute of her nine years living at Edmund Hillary Retirement Village, and going into lockdown was just more confirmation that she had made the right move.

She was so impressed that Ryman Healthcare was doing its utmost to keep all of its residents safe, she even wrote a letter to TV3’s The Project listing all the many measures the company had taken in its 34 New Zealand villages.
