In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.
During his time in Auckland, Rolland went to the zoo, enjoyed nights out, worked at a popular bar, dabbled in modelling and, with friends, visited Piha on the rugged west coast.
Before his disappearance, Rolland expressed to his family that he wished to visit Piha again, and on March 6 last year, he did just that.
He has not been seen or heard from since.
“Each day we feel more and more worried and more helpless," his father Thierry Rolland tells Stuff.
