Watch the full police media conference as body found in Grace Millane case

A body has been found in the search for missing tourist Grace Millane.

Police confirmed in a press conference on Sunday afternoon that a body had been discovered in a bush area of Scenic Drive in the Waitākere Ranges.

Detective Inspector Scott Beard says the body, found in the bush about 10m off the road, is believed to be that of 22-year-old Ms Millane.

A formal identification and post-mortem will be carried out on Monday, but the evidence strongly suggests it is that of the backpacker who has been missing for a week.
