Rise in missing persons cases worry Police The increasing number of persons reported missing has become a cause of concern to the Fiji Police Force as a total of 100 reports were lodged between January to July, 2018.

Out of the 100, 78 people have been found after a period of one or two days while 22 remain missing.

Of this, 2 are drowning cases whereby the bodies of the victims are yet to be found, while 4 are missing at sea, leaving 16 cases pending, which are being pursued by the respective investigating officers.

Police Chief of Operations, ACP Maretino Qiolevu said majority of the cases involve those aged between 15-30 years of age whereby a disagreement with loved ones has led to them running away from home, or one has simply failed to inform their family members of their plans to stay at a friends or relatives place.

He said there is often speculation of missing person being abducted or linked to human trafficking, which is not true as majority are found safe and well and had initially failed to communicate their plans.

“Parents are encouraged to communicate with each other as there have been cases where a child decides to stay over at a friend’s place without the knowledge of their parent or guardian.”

“By working together we can avoid the unnecessary panic and stress caused when an individual is reported missing,” said ACP Qiolevu.
