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."

♻Eco-hotel has been built from recycled shipping containers♻

Fiona from Henderson

If a luxurious hotel in California can be built from recycled shipping containers, then explain to me why on earth should we be currently experiencing such a severe housing shortage in our country?
This great idea should meet all the needs of the eco warriors out there and the people's need to purchase their first home.
A green roof and solar panels could also be added along with using recycled or environmentally friendly products in the build and design.
I do know that people are building homes out of them, but come on all of councils nationwide, the Government and every person out there ... this idea solves so many problems and all the while building up greenie points with the eco groups out there.
