HOTELIERS have joined forces with the police to search for two people who are missing in Cakaudrove waters since Friday.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri yesterday said the duo left Yacata Island on Friday morning in a white wooden cabin boat.

"One of them is 63 years old and the other is seven years old.

"They were transporting some passengers across to Navakaoca Village on Taveuni but failed to return," he said.

"A team of officers was activated for the search and they managed to locate a biscuit bucket that contained their mobile phone and some clothes.

"Hoteliers nearby have joined the police to look for the two missing people."

Insp Sokomuri said they would be grateful if people assisted them with any information on the two missing persons.

"We are appealing to members of the public, especially those along the coastal areas of Cakaudrove to come forward with any information regarding the pair.

"As of now, we are continuing our search," said Insp Sokomuri.
