Auckland, Dec 10 (IANS) A man charged with the murder of a British backpacker in New Zealand appeared in a court here on Monday.

Grace Millane disappeared in Auckland on December 1. Police ended their search on Sunday after finding a body on the outskirts of the city, the BBC reported.

According to court documents, the man had been living at the Citylife Hotel on Queen Street in central Auckland, which is where Millane was last seen.

Millane had been travelling alone in New Zealand for two weeks, following a six-week group trip through South America.

The announcement on Saturday by police that Millane was “no longer alive” followed a review of CCTV footage, the forensic examination of a hotel where she was last seen, and the discovery of a vehicle.
