THREE-YEAR-OLD Anae'l Khan has not stopped asking about her dad Hafiz Khan ever since he went missing in the Bua waters two weeks ago.
Her grandmother Ana Khan said her little angel (Anae'l) has told everyone who visited their home in Bua that her dad would bring back home her "chokichoki" packet.
But the wish of her little angel may remain a mystery because the body of her dad has not been found.
Hafiz, 23, was one of the four men who had gone out fishing two weekends ago when they experienced problems.
Three of them swam back to shore while her dad failed to return.
Mrs Khan said Anae'l had brought tears to many visitors and relatives at their home in Vunivau, Bua.
"She always brings tears to our eyes when she asks for her dad. She keeps telling us that her daddy will come home in the afternoon and when he doesn't come, she pesters us to find him," she said.
"It is so difficult to accept the fact that my son is gone. My husband and children with relatives and friends searched everywhere for him.
"We searched everywhere for my son from the sea to the bamboo bushes and through farms. We miss him so much."
Mrs Khan said Hafiz was a qualified boat captain who had been fishing for more than three years.
Hafiz is survived by his wife and two children. Hafiz's wife and children, parents and siblings will go out to sea today to lay wreaths as they remember the life of their loved one.
Yesterday, police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the search was continuing for the missing captain.
