Family thanks public after missing Tongan father found safe

The family of Tupou Pasina in New Zealand said on social media he was found Wednesday and is safe and sound.

His heartbreaking wife Sinisa Pasina reported him as a missing person on Monday, two days after he disappeared on Saturday December 24.

As Kaniva News reported last night, Tupou was last seen after leaving his home in a vehicle.

“Friends and family if you happen to see my beloved husband Tupou Pasina please contact me. He has been missing since Saturday in our van and he has not returned home since then”, the wife, Sinisa Pasina wrote on Facebook in Tongan.

“I really need your help”.

The family said they reported Pasina’s missing to Police.

This morning Sinisa took to Facebook to reveal the great news.

“May I take this opportunity to thank the prayers and love that had been shared towards my husband. He is still alive (“kei ma’u pe manava mo’ui”)”.

She said that there are no words great enough to express her thankfulness to all searchers and supporters who spent times to search for her husband.

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.
