Victoria Police search three missing Tongans, two sisters and a man

Police in Victoria, Melbourne, Australia are appealing for public assistance to help locate two missing girls in Sunshine West and a man in Dandenong South.

Officers have been told 16-year-old Meleane and 14-year-old Rachel Fangaake were last seen on Lachlan Road, Sunshine West on Thursday October 27.

Vitolio Lātū, 20, was last seen at a factory in Elliot St, Dandenong South, at 4.14am on October 17.

The Tongan girls have not returned to their Warmington Road home and family have concerns for their welfare due to their age and the length of time that they have been missing, Police said.

On a post on Facebook a person by the name Lose Fangaake commented and said she dropped them off at school but they never returned.

Police have released images of Rachael and Meleane in the hope that someone may have information on their current whereabouts.

Anyone with information on their current whereabouts is urged to call Sunshine Police on 9313 3333.

Meanwhile, the 20-year-old Lātū was described as about 183cm tall with a solid build, dark short hair and dark eyes.

He was last seen wearing a fluorescent green top, dark blue pants and black work shoes.

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.
