Three teams of police and villagers from Moturiki, Tokou and Levuka continue their search for 49 year old Matavuso Kotobalavu who went missing in Lomaiviti waters last Thursday.
And the Nabua resident’s family has also confirmed that a memorial service will be held for him this Saturday at the Jubilee Hall.
A fiberglass boat left Moturiki for Levuka with six people on board about 9pm  and  it capsized at Gavo passage due to heavy swells.
Five of the passengers managed to swim safely to shore while the 49 year old education counselor remains missing.

 

 

Kotobalavu is survived by his wife, daughter and son.
