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]."
