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."

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."

Mechanic

Janine from Saint Johns

Hi Neighbours being a female it's hard to find a good fair mechanic who will not take advantage of us when we need our car fixed. I'm looking for a mechanic to fix a transmission leak but i seem to be getting some ridiculous prices. I was told its the seal. I took my car in for a check just after covid and paid for the check. It went in with no leak! And it came back to me with a leak after they topped it up with fluid. That was not a problem I originally had. Now it's a problem! Can you help recommend someone please. My car is my pride and joy. But I don't want to pay a arm and a leg for it.😣 just want a fair price. Thank you.

Hi
Our very reliable Toyota Corolla was written off recently leaving my son and daughter without transport (and mum taxi is on strike). Does anyone have a small hatchback or sedan for sale in good condition around the $4000 mark?
