An Auckland businesswoman with multiple company directorships has gone missing in the Manukau area.
Police said Elizabeth (Ying) Zhong, aged 55, was reported missing from her Sunnyhills home this morning and was last seen on Friday afternoon.
Several police cars were outside her home in Auckland on Saturday night.
"Police and Elizabeth's family have concerns for her wellbeing and would like to hear from anyone who may have seen her, or who knows where she may be," police said.
"She is about 160cm and of slim build, and may be on foot in the Counties Manukau East area.
"Anyone who can help police locate Elizabeth is asked to call 105 quoting file number 201128/1909."
Zhong, who has had health issues recently, was the sole owner and director of two wine-making companies that are now in receivership - Kennedy Point Vineyard on Waiheke Island and Carrick Wines in Central Otago.
She is also sole owner and director of film production company Digital Post Ltd, Digipost Entertainment and associated companies.
Digipost offers computer animation and graphics, film post production, sound mixing and visual efects.
Credits which the company has been involved with include Mosely, Ash versus Evil Dad, Mt Zion, Spartacus, Love Birds and 30 Days of Night.
Its website states: "Digipost is New Zealand's most experienced post production and visual effects company dedicated to bringing to life the creative endeavours of our clients, delivering the highest quality services to the film, advertising and television industries."
In 2018, Variety reported that Zhong and Digipost was part of a "three-way development and finance deal" with Tim White's Southern Light Films and Super Entertainment for live action-CGI fantasy film Shelved worth up to $56 million.
Variety reported the movie was about "two slacker robots who fret about being replaced by humans". The movie, which included the involvement of NZ-born director of Shrek, Andrew Adamson – would be a New Zealand-China co-production.
