No sign of missing Houma man as search continues

The search for the 20-year-old man from Houma who fell into the sea at the blowholes reconvened but still there was no sign of him this morning.

Police and locals were searching after Melekisēteki Fīnau fell into the sea at Houma Sunday 21.

A relative very close to the family, which we chose not to name, said the victim was the son of Faʻahivalu and Mele Fīnau of Houma.

The source alleged Melekisēteki was chased before he jumped into the rough seas.

It is understood the search was called off last night before the searchers returned to sea this morning.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
