Missing French teen Eloi Rolland: Friends and family still have no answers a year on

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

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.

Friendly, professional, pet-loving local for hire :)

Sarah from Grafton

Hi neighbours,

With Air NZ having less budget for me lately, I'm finding myself with plenty of time on my hands! What better way to occupy them than taking good care of local pets again. It's something I've enjoyed doing for years. And my favourite client passed away! That's me and her in the photo.

With plenty of experience and A++ reviews on both Trusted House Sitters (international) and Kiwi House Sitters (and even Air BnB as a house guest!) I'm your responsible and cheerful go-to for just about any pet under the sun.

Please get in touch if your loved one needs walking or company while you're away :)
