Cyprus travel advice and latest forecast after fatal floods

Ayia Napa a popular resort in the south-east of Cyprus the north of the island was hit by torrential downpours and flash floods this week

Grace Millane, 22, who is missing in New Zealand.

Grace Millane's father is said to be on his way to the country, where his 22-year-old daughter vanished on Saturday.

She has not returned to her Auckland hostel in several days. Her birthday was on Sunday and police said it was unusual for her not to contact her family then.

Miss Millane, from Essex, was last seen at Auckland's Sky City complex and did not respond to messages on her birthday the following day.

They said Miss Millane had booked to stay at the Base Backpackers hostel in central Auckland until 8 December.

Relatives have shared appeals for information on Facebook, and DI Beard said more than 20 investigators were combing through CCTV footage to track Ms Millane's last movements after a number of unconfirmed sightings had been reported.

Can everyone please share this, we haven't heard from my sister since Saturday is now travelling in New Zealand and was last seen in Auckland.

The witness said the young woman, who she believes to have been Millane, did not have her arm out with her thumb stuck up in the air like a hitchhiker.

Various sightings have her wearing either black top, blues jeans and red sneakers, or a black dress with white shoes.

Before New Zealand she had spent four weeks travelling in South America.

The burden of sea-level rise will weigh on the most vulnerable unless a new approach is developed and legislated, a new report says.

Ms Millane's brother Michael said: "We are really, really anxious and concerned about Grace".

It is also working with the New Zealand Police to find Grace, he said.

"We are asking anybody who has been in contact with her or knows her to contact police".

She approximately 5ft 6in (168cm) in height, and 58 kg.

However she was travelling alone when she came to New Zealand about two weeks ago.

Base Backpackers declined to comment to the Herald on Wednesday.

Tony McLeod, consular manager at the British High Commission in Wellington, said the commission were providing consular assistance to the family back in the UK.
