Missing French teen Eloi Rolland: Parents plead for information as son turns 19

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours. The parents of missing French teenager Eloi Rolland are pleading for information on his whereabouts on what is his first birthday since his disappearance.

Rolland should have been celebrating his 19th birthday surrounded by friends and family in France on Thursday, but he has not been seen or heard from since CCTV spotted him in West Auckland on March 7.

Rolland’s parents Thierry and Catherine Rolland, who have been unable to travel to New Zealand due to the coronavirus pandemic, posted a renewed call for information on West Auckland’s community Facebook pages.

Written as if it were coming from their son, the post read: “Today, Thursday, [I turn] 19 years old. But I am a missing person. My parents are looking for me, their heart is with me and [they] hope to find me safe and sound.
I am appealing for witnesses, if since my disappearance I have been seen or spoken to by anyone, please inform my family or the NZ Police [sic]."

We Say, You Say: Auckland Uni Exams

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Hi Neighbours,

Auckland uni students have spoken out against on-campus exams this year as their overseas counterparts will be able to check notes while they will not be able to.

Those international and domestic students remaining in New Zealand will be completing their exams under supervised conditions. A university email obtained by Stuff showed that overseas students will also be given a 30 minute grace period, in case of any technical faults, with this time able to be used towards the final exam.

Do you think this is fair?
