Tropical Cyclone Ana has claimed the life of a 49-year-old man while five other people are still missing.

The man drowned in a river near Waikubukubu Village in Nadarivatu on Friday.

Among those reported missing is a 3-year-old boy in Lautoka.

Police say the boy went missing while accompanying his grandfather on Friday to check their boat which was stuck in the mangrove plants along the Velovelo seaside area in Lautoka.

Two fishermen who were reported missing on Wednesday are still missing.

They had left Cikobia Village for Vunikodi Village in Macuata in a fibreglass boat.

Two women who went fishing in Vatuwaqa have also been missing since Thursday.
