A 27-year-old man of Navosa died yesterday morning while trying to cross the Takutale creek with a friend in search of eels.

Fiji Police spokesperson Ana Naisoro said that the deceased friend who is also 27 years of age managed to recover his body before advising Police.

Meanwhile, the 40-year-old man who was reported missing in the Kadavu waters has been found after two days.

Naisoro said that he was sheltering in a nearby village because his boat encountered mechanical difficulties.

She also confirmed that the man is fine and has reunited with his family.
