Search underway for missing man near Houma blowholes

Police and locals were searching after a man had fallen into the sea at Houma blowholes.

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

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

The search remains ongoing at the time of this report.

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.
