He will remain in police custody until Monday morning when he will appear in Auckland District Court.

Detective Inspector Scott Beard, from Auckland City Police, said at a press conference today: "Grace is no longer alive and this is a murder investigation".

The 22-year-old from Essex - described by her father as "lovely" and "family-orientated" - was last seen in New Zealand a week ago.

Tonight's statement said the Millane family have requested privacy at this time and will not be making any further statements at this stage.

Police later said they had spoken to the man and that he was a "person of interest". He would not confirm what type of vehicle it was.

Grace Millane's father David said his daughter had been excited about coming to New Zealand and had bombarded the family with images of her adventures since arriving.

The last confirmed sighting of Millane was at the CityLife Hotel, in Queen St, at 9.41pm on Saturday.

Det Insp Beard confirmed today that the man being questioned by police on Saturday was the same individual.

Detective Inspector Scott Beard briefed media in Auckland earlier this afternoon and said they were treating her disappearance as a homicide.

He wouldn't speculate on how they met.

"Somebody may find it somewhere, we don't know what has happened to it".

An emotional Beard said it had been a tough time for all involved in the investigation.

News of the murder inquiry comes hours after Millane's family said they were "staying very positive" as the search for her continued.
