POLICE officers on Taveuni have been advised by the Fiji Police Force headquarters in Suva to continue with the search for the 40-year-old woman who went missing while on a fishing trip last week.
"Officers involved in the search have been advised to keep on searching for the woman as she is still missing for the past five days," police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said.
The search by police began last Saturday when she failed to return home after a fishing trip.
"The woman, Makarita Bogidrau of Soqulu was reported missing by relatives at the Taveuni Police Station after she failed to return home from the trip.
"The search was conducted immediately with the assistance of the community.
"We are once again asking the public to help us locate the missing woman or if they have any information on her whereabouts, we will be very grateful to be informed."
It was earlier reported that Ms Bogidrau went fishing with her nephew who returned home for some food but when her nephew returned to the fishing spot, she was nowhere to be found.
