The Fiji Maritime Surveillance Rescue and Coordination Centre continues its search for two men who have been missing at sea since the weekend.
The two men went for a fishing trip on Saturday morning on a fibre glass boat, however, they failed to return.
A search was conducted headed by Police officers based at Nabouwalu and assistance of the villagers from Vuya in Bua on Sunday and Monday.
Rescue and Coordination Centre says marine and air search teams are on stand down at this time waiting on a break in the weather before redeploying.
The centre says as time goes on, the search area for the two missing increases as it now extends out to the Yasawa group.
People are advised to be mindful of the current weather situation and take all the necessary precautions.
