The Atlas Trade hardwood long handle, round mouth shovel is missing and could be anywhere between the Scenic Drive and central Auckland areas.
"Police would like to hear from anyone who may have found this item anytime after Monday 3 December," says Detective Inspector Scott Beard.
"Someone may have come across it, picked it up and taken it home. We need to speak to that person or anyone who has seen it."
Police have also released photos of a 2016 red Toyota Corolla hatchback which was hired from a central Auckland rental company on Sunday, the day after Ms Millane was last heard from.
The car was found in Taupo.
Police say they have had a number of calls from people with information on the car.
The vehicle was rented for a 24-hour period, and was returned to a central Auckland rental car company at lunchtime on December 3.
Police are continuing to ask to hear from anyone who travelled along Scenic Drive on Monday, December 3, between 6am and 9:30am.
They would also like to hear from anyone who walked along Scenic Dr, or who parked in the Waitakere Dam carpark over the same time period.
The 26-year-old suspect appeared in court on Monday where he was granted interim name suppression.
