Radio Hapi Lagun’s Sina Adrian said Police were still searching for the boy.
“The search still continues (they) are unable to locate the lad who went missing during Friday night’s accident, so Police at Ringi are still searching that part of the Western Province, they’ve been searching since the weekend,” he said.
“Some of the stubby boats were used in other police activities so another group of Police officers has conducted the search since.”
