POLICE officers have managed to recover some items belonging to the three fishermen who were reported missing after their boat capsized near Taveuni waters last weekend.
Spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the officers recovered the items near Kioa Island.
"The items found included a jacket, sleeping bag, bucket and cargo pants which have been identified by the wife of one of the victims," she said.
"Despite this latest development, the team continues its search and a decision will be made later on whether to call off the search."
It was earlier reported the group of fishermen were from Lovonivonu and had left Rabi Island on a fishing trip on an island near Qamea.
The captain of the boat managed to swim ashore to an island near Qamea and was seen by a group of villagers travelling towards the island.
