VILLAGERS in northern Macuata have joined police in searching for a fisherman who went missing during a fishing trip last weekend.

Divisional police commander Northern SSP Naulumatua Lutunacaucau said the search extended from the Wainikoro waters to the open sea.

"The search has not been successful so far but our team is still continuing with their job," he said.

"Villagers of Vunivutu and the relatives and family members have also come on board to search for the missing man.

"This is the update we have so far on this case but investigations into the matter still continue."

The incident has prompted police to reiterate its warning to the people.

"We are appealing to the public to be extra cautious when out at sea so they can return safely to their homes. Listen to weather warnings and always be prepared."

The man was reported missing by a colleague.
