An Auckland businesswoman with several company directorships has disappeared in the Manukau area.
Police said Elizabeth (Ying) Zhong, 55, was reported missing from her Sunnyhills home this morning and was last seen on Friday afternoon.
Several police cars were outside his Auckland home on Saturday night.
“Police and Elizabeth’s family are concerned about her welfare and want to hear from anyone who may have seen her, or who knows where she is,” police said.
“He is about 160cm tall and slender in stature, and is probably a walk in the eastern area of Manukau County.
“Anyone who can help the police find Elizabeth is required to call the number 105 citation file 201128/1909.”
Zhong, who has experienced health problems recently, is the sole owner and director of two winemaking companies who are now recipients – Kennedy Point Vineyard on Waiheke Island and Carrick’s wine in Central Otago.
He is also the sole owner and director of the film production company Digital Post Ltd, Digipost Entertainment and related companies.
Digipost offers animation and computer graphics, film post-production, sound mixing and visual effects.
Credits that have been engaged by the company 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 visual effects and post production company dedicated to realizing the creative endeavors of our clients, providing the highest quality service to the film, advertising and television industries.”
In 2018, Variety reported that Zhong and Digipost were part of a “three-way development and finance deal” with Tim White’s Southern Light Films and Super Entertainment for a live-action fantasy film CGI Shelved worth up to $ 56 million.
Variety reports the film is about “two lazy robots restless about being replaced by humans.” The film, which involves NZ-born Shrek director Andrew Adamson, will be a New Zealand-China co-production.
