PERSON of interest Eliki Suka remains elusive despite an intensive police search in the greater Sigatoka area.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the 65-year-old was still on the run.

She said they would be working with stations and community posts around the country.

The man from Midra settlement in Sigatoka is believed to have crucial information on a recent fire at the Natavora Waters Restaurant and Music Bar on the Coral Coast.

Mr Suka's 43-year-old wife died of burns from the fire and the couple's eight-year-old daughter is still admitted at the Lautoka Hospital.

"We are working with family members to locate his whereabouts," Ms Naisoro said.
