Police are concerned for a 22-year-old woman who has not been seen for a number of weeks.
Claudia Corbo De Castro was expected in Culverden, north of Christchurch, at the end of last week to start a new job but did not arrive.

Police believe she may be travelling by car.
She arrived in New Zealand in March and was due to spend 12 months in the country.
Police are asking her to contact police so they can confirm she is safe.
Anyone who has seen her or knows of her whereabouts is being urged to phone their local police station.
