“Always listen for updates on the radio and for more detail contact the Marine Communication centre or nearest police station.”

The missing boat incidents occurred in Temotu province; one missing boat has already been rescued with seven people – two women and five men onboard.

Manelusi said one boat is still missing and search is continuing and he calls on the people of Temotu, Makira Ugi and South Malaita to look out for any outboard motor and report to the police if they see any.
