Search for trio on hold

POLICE and Navy put the search for two women and a 10-year-old girl in Kadavu on halt as bad weather creeps in.

The three went missing six days ago while on a fishing trip in the Kadavu waters.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said missing are 43-year-old Litia Tuikoro, her ten year-old daughter Cema and a 33-year-old woman who is four months pregnant.

Ms Naisoro said the three went fishing in a canoe which was later discovered on shore.

Ms Naisoro said while the police had been doing their part, they were assisted by a navy patrol boat on Tuesday.

The missing three are from Tiliva in Kadavu.

Ms Naisoro said police could not stress enough about the dangers of going out to sea especially when the weather was forecasted to be rough.

She said most missing at sea cases eventuated because people did not take heed of warnings issued by the weather office.

She added with the cyclone warning in place, it would be unwise to be at open sea which areas would be affected.

Police will make a decision later on whether to continue their search or not.
