Father and son missing off ʻEua since Saturday


Two men who were aboard a fishing boat which went missing in ʻEua islands have been identified as a local 40-year-old father and his 14-year-old son.

It was believed the duo were heading towards Faiʻana island near ʻOhonua when their boat suffered a mechanical failure on Saturday, December 10.

Police said the father contacted his family on his phone saying their boat engine could not be started and called for help.

Police search and rescue boat ʻAlotolu was sent to the area.

The men were not found and according to Police the rough seas hindered the search.

Search operation continued yesterday but still no sight of the missing men.
