The local woman who is reported to be part South Malaita and Guadalcanal Province quickly noticed Mr Steward as he was not a person from that area and led him to a village local at Reko who with his family took good care of him.
“Mr Steward was looked after well by the locals until they saw the missing person on the Island Sun newspaper before contacting Mr Steward’s family on Tuesday 21st August (yesterday) seeing them pick him up later in the evening being in good health,” said report.
Mr Steve Ruhasia, one of Stewards family member said on behalf of their family, they want to convey their gratitude to the locals and the people of Reko for finding and taking good care of Steward.
“Also to the Island Sun and all those who had helped in search for Steward from the day he was missing,” said Steve.
