Two peo­ple were ques­tioned and re­leased fol­low­ing con­tin­u­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions by Po­lice in the case of the mys­te­ri­ous dis­ap­pear­ance of Eliki Yaco from Nukuni Vil­lage, Ono-i-Lau on May 31.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion file is now with Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion De­part­ment (CID) head­quar­ters, said Po­lice spokesper­son Ana Naisoro. Mr Yaco was seen on the is­land where he picked up a Govern­ment worker and her part­ner from a pic­nic spot.

Po­lice ques­tioned them.

It is al­leged that he was at­tacked by a shark on their way back to the is­land.

“Our team the from CID both are of going over the find­ings be­fore de­cid­ing the next course of ac­tion,” Ms Naisoro said.

Mr Yaco’s fa­ther, Eliki Rarawa Se­nior, brushed aside spec­u­la­tions cir­cu­lat­ing on so­cial me­dia about his son’s dis­ap­pear­ance.

“I only hope that in­ves­ti­ga­tions will be car­ried out in a timely man­ner and that we get the an­swers that we con­tin­u­ally seek for,” Mr Rarawa said.

The Govern­ment worker had since been re­posted for her safety.
