Police would like to hear from anyone who may have seen any of the items matching their descriptions over the past week.

"Her family are devastated", he said.

The 22-year-old, from Essex, vanished in New Zealand a week ago.

On Saturday police released images of her necklace and watch and urged anyone who recognised the items to come forward.

Miss Millane's body has not yet been found, but Det Insp Beard said police were "determined to do all we can to find her".

"Several of her belongings, including her passport are missing and police believe it is likely that Grace has these items with her".

Police confirmed the man being held was with Miss Millane on the Saturday evening and "went to a number of places before going to the CityLife Hotel", where she was last seen.

Grace Millane, 22, was last seen on Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018.

Ms Millane's father made an emotional plea on Friday to find his daughter after she went missing in New Zealand.

The British backpacker, who graduated from the University of Lincoln in September, had been travelling alone in New Zealand for two weeks. "We are all extremely upset, and it's very hard at this time to fully describe the range of emotions we are going through".

Described as "fun loving, outgoing and [a] family-orientated person", Millane was never out of contact with family and friends for this long, her family said.

The woman's father, David Millane, told reporters Friday his daughter was on a yearlong trip overseas that began in Peru.

He wouldn't speculate where Grace was killed, Beard said.

The image was taken about 7.15pm on Saturday night at Auckland's Sky City casino complex.

She was wearing a black dress and white shoes.

Grace Millane's family say they are staying positive and hope she returns home soon.
