Missing man last seen with a woman

A man who went missing last week at Ocean Club Maninoa was last seen with a woman, says the resort's manager.

Thirty-five-year-old Semi Leau of Solosolo was reported last seen at the Ocean Club in Maninoa, Siumu last Tuesday after he went swimming at around 4.00am in the morning.  

Ocean Club general manager, Alexandria Meredith, confirmed the missing man and an unidentified woman checked in the evening before his disappearance the next morning. 

“They were staying here,” she said. 

“They checked in on that evening and the next morning, the only thing I was notified of was that they had gone swimming and didn’t return.

“So I called the Police and left it with them.”

Ms. Meredith said the couple were locals from what she could ascertain, but she did not have the chance to meet them. 

“The Police are still doing their investigations and I don’t want to interfere with their work. 

“We are on the water quite often, so hopefully we do see something and we’ll notify the Police.”

Asked if the woman was also missing, she said: “I don’t have much to do with the girl and I have left that with the Police.” 

Efforts to get a comment from the Police to verify the whereabouts of the woman were not successful by press time. 

The Police are appealing for public assistance to locate Mr. Leau. 

According to a Police statement, Mr. Leau has brown eyes and short black hair and was last seen wearing a red t-shirt and brown shorts. 

“If you have any information that might lead to his whereabouts please contact our nearest police station,” it said. 

The Police can be contacted through 911 or 22222.
