Teen missing

THE guardian of a Third Former who went missing from his school dormitory two weeks ago is pleading for information about her nephew.

Inoke Yanuyanutawa went missing from Ratu Kadavulevu School dormitory a fortnight ago but his guardian, Melania Tibika was informed only last week.

"The school called me last week Wednesday enquiring whether or not Inoke was coming back to school, that's when I got to know that he hasn't been in school for the last two weeks," she said.

"His parents have been separated since he was four years old and I have supported him and his education to date. At home, we have so much pride in him as he has reached high school particularly now in RKS."

Education Ministry permanent secretary Dr Brij Lal said he had not been informed yet.

He said it was a worry that a student had gone missing from the school dorm and the authorities didn't know about it.

He said he would look into this.

Police confirmed that a missing person's report was lodged with police by the school principal after it was discovered that Inoke had not attended classes for the past two weeks.

According to Ms Tibika, the principal had not informed them that Inoke was missing as teachers assumed he had returned home to his guardians.

Inoke has not contacted his family members or friends.
