Police say they have exhausted all leads for finding Eloi Rolland, 18, who has been missing from Auckland for almost four months.
The teen, who has limited English, has not been seen since he was captured on CCTV at the Britomart train station on March 7, where he caught a train to New Lynn's Fruitvale Rd station. It's understood he was in the vicinity of Piha Rd and Scenic Drive at 9.18am, but this is where the trail ends.
After more than 1600 hours searching for Rolland, police ended the physical search in May, pending reports of new information or evidence.
Rolland's sister, Aurore Rolland, told Stuff the family were "really sad" the search had been suspended.
"We [are at] the point where we are waiting for a miracle. We believe [he] is not dead in the sea at Piha Beach. Things need to be done, even if we have to search during our entire life."

Conscious Action facilitates spaces to raise awareness and inspire meaningful action on topics that range from sustainability to wellbeing and everything related to conscious living.
Once again Colour Our Story has a beautiful collection of drawings and stories, this time collected from children in Bali and Aotearoa. And you will get to view them first before they go into our special colouring in books with stories.
In addition you will get to enjoy the creative therapy of tracing the children's drawings, which is part of our creative bookmaking process, while soaking in some mindfulness moments with Brian as well as some delicious nibbles, mulled wine, non alcoholic drinks, relaxing music and of course the beautiful company of each other as you get to know the children through their artworks.
