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."

Fixing Drafty windows

Robert from Exceed - We fix windows & doors

To reduce drafts around your windows, and therefore keep your home warmer during winter, it is worth checking your friction stays - the hinge which holds the part of the window which opens to the frame. There are several problems which can develop over time:

1. The friction wears out & windows flop open in the breeze,

2. The hinge gets corroded & stiff to open, sometimes this can be re-covered by spraying the 4 friction joints with a spray lube, anything but the red 556 CRC which has a cutting compound in it.

3. The hinge wears & loses the ability to pull the top of the window closed

An easy way to check your friction stays is with our free draft testing card. To request a card, or book a free assessment, give us a call on 0800 25 25 00
