USPS delivery status is not updating? Should I be worried?

My sister sending me a gift from USA to New Zealand on the 14 December 2009, Monday. The item is moved to Miami USPS ISC and have been dispatched.
But yet there is not a single update to it since the 15th 5:05pm.
The mail is an Express Mail International + Insured. Package is about 2 to 3pounds. Estimate shipping date is 3 -> 5 days.

Class: Express Mail International®

Status: International Dispatch

Your item left the United States from ISC MIAMI FL (USPS) at 5:05 PM on December 15, 2009. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later.

What the heck is going on? 3 days flight to NZ? standard flight time is 19-24hours from Miami to Auckland NZ. There is no update and yet no information about it. I checked my local post shop and the information they got is "Left the orgin country".

Can anyone help answer my question?
called USPS up and asked them but they said they don't know anything about it, all they know is the package left USA already. Called up the NZpost and ask them about it and they said they don't have any confirmation regarding the arrival of this package. I then called the Custom NZ and they also don't have a clue about it. Now I have been 4 working days and 1 more day is the 3-5 working day deadline or Tuesday is the 6 working day delay...I really hope it could come sooner

I wouldn't worry about it, it may just be caught up in the Christmas rush. Or it may be in transit over sea or air.

If it doesn't arrive by the new year then claim the cost of what you sent through your postal insurence.
