THE people of Yasawa and those living in coastal areas of Ba and Lautoka have been asked to keep a look-out for the body of a missing 54-year-old man who was travelling in a boat that capsized near Vomo Island earlier this week.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the man was still missing.

"We've just been advising all of the villages in the Yasawas and in Ba to be ready and to alert us if they find anything," Insp Sokomuri said.

"Meanwhile, our teams are still conducting their search for him."

Inspector Sokomuri said the amputee was travelling with two other men to Naviti's Bota-i-Ra Resort before the boat capsized off the coast of Lautoka.

He said the two passengers were found on Wednesday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the post-mortem examination for the six-month-old girl who died in Lautoka on Tuesday determined the infant died of a heart disease.

"We can confirm that she died of a heart disease and her death was not caused by the herbal medicine."
