The duo had gone fishing on Saturday morning off 'Ohonua 'Eua and had contacted family to say they were having difficulty with their boat's engine.

Other fishing boats joined the police vessel, 'Alotulu, to search for the duo but had had no success.

Radio Tonga reports that the search has been hampered by the boat not having a beacon.
