Family of missing school girl Meliame Nai ‘devastated’ as search comes to standstill

The family of missing South Auckland school girl Meliame Nai are “desperate for information”, as police admitted they were no closer to finding her.

She disappeared while walking with a girl friend to a dairy last Saturday night in Māngere East.

Meliame is Tongan while her friend was Maori. They are both 16 years-old.

Meliame’s father Lōpeti Nai of Fua’amotu, Tongatapu who is now living in Māngere with his family, has told Kaniva News in a telephone conversation this afternoon they have not heard from Meliame since she went missing.

In a desperate call for assistance on Facebook Lōpeti wrote: “I’m asking for support from the community.

“My daughter at the age of 16 and her friend who is also 16 has been missing since Saturday last week.

“They both went for a walk to the shop at about 8:30pm and since then, they’ve both still been missing and no one knows where they are or what happened to them.

“The police are still on the case and are working towards finding them both.

“So i’m writing this In hope that someone could please help find any information to them missing please contact the police or call me at 0273999720 or this police officers number at 0211910806 they’ve were last seen in mangere east. Thank you.”
