Missing French teen Eloi Rolland: Friends and family still have no answers a year on

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.

In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.

During his time in Auckland, Rolland went to the zoo, enjoyed nights out, worked at a popular bar, dabbled in modelling and, with friends, visited Piha on the rugged west coast.

Before his disappearance, Rolland expressed to his family that he wished to visit Piha again, and on March 6 last year, he did just that.

He has not been seen or heard from since.

“Each day we feel more and more worried and more helpless," his father Thierry Rolland tells Stuff.

Would you call this restoration a miracle?

Dovetail Restorations Ltd

Our client asked us to perform a miracle on her pair of armchairs, and I wouldn’t call it miracle, but a job well done! This is the first of the pair to be restored. The vintage piece has had a full leather refresh, and the feet polished. What a beaut!

Covid-19: New online tool shows people when they're likely to be vaccinated

Hi neighbours,

Hi neighbours,

Want to know when it's your turn to get the Covid-19 vaccine?

An online tool which can help New Zealanders figure out which vaccination group they’re in has been released.

The questionnaire is now available on the Unite Against Covid-19 website.

Users answer a short series of questions about their health, location, job, and life situation.

The results tell them which of the four main vaccination groups they’re in, and when they can expect to get their vaccine.

Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said the tool also provided more information about who is in each group.

“So if you’re a healthcare worker or work in a long-term residential environment, for example, it will provide an indication when you can expect to get vaccinated.

“You don’t need to provide any information that could be used to identify you, and the information you do provide isn’t saved once you leave the web page.”

The tool can be used on mobile, desktop and tablet.

The ministry said it was in the process of being translated into 24 languages, which would start to appear on the website from Monday.

The website page and online tool will be updated as the vaccine roll-out plan scales up.

“As we move through the roll-out of the vaccination programme, we want people to be as informed as soon as possible about when they can expect to be vaccinated.

“This tool is designed to make that as easy as possible,” Bloomfield said.

Do you live near an abandoned or derelict property?

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

New Zealand is in a housing crisis. Around the country, the demand for property continues to outstrip supply, driving record median prices even higher.

Around the country, the demand for property continues to outstrip supply, driving record median prices even higher. In Auckland - where an average house price of over $1m has seen it ranked the fourth least-affordable city in the world - some properties sit empty and unmaintained.

Last week I reported on some of Auckland's mysterious million dollar dumps, and I'm sure there are plenty more out there. If you live near an empty, derelict property and are curious about it, I'd love to hear from you - flick me an email at caroline.williams@stuff.co.nz
