POLICE are continuing the search for a fisherman in the Wainikoro area after he went missing on Saturday over the weekend.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said the incident came to light after the fisherman was missing from his boat by his friend.

Insp Sokomuri said a search party had been combing the Vunivutu area for any sign of the missing fisherman since Saturday evening.

"We are requesting members of the community in the nearby area to come forward with information if they might have seen the missing person," he said.

"We also advise fishermen to refrain from fishing alone in secluded areas for their own safety especially if they are going on long trips.

"This is to ensure that help is always available if disaster or mishap strikes," he said.

Insp Sokomuri said the search teams were still searching for the missing man yesterday afternoon.
