Facebook leads Police to search for missing woman allegedly held captive in ‘Eua

    Tonga Police have launched an investigation after a photo showing a distressed woman went viral on Facebook this week.

    Hivakakala Langoia, 20, who goes by the name Sālote Hivakakala Langoia on Facebook, had gone missing in ‘Eua after she fled her home at Houmakelikao recently.

    She reportedly contacted her father through Facebook messenger and told him she was being held by a man against her will.

    Some concerned Facebook users have posted a photo of a man to Facebook claiming he was Hivakakala’s captor.

    Police could not be able to locate Langoia after a search yesterday. Unconfirmed reports on Facebook said this morning she was found.

    A post on her Facebook account on Monday which appeared to have been posted by her captor told her family to go and search for Hivakakala in the sea.

    The poster told her family to stop contacting her on her Facebook account as they will not see her again.

    The poster alleged Hivakakala’s family did not like him because of his marital status.

    In one of the shares of the post on Facebook which had more than 300 comments some commentators threatened to harm the captor if they happened to find them.

    Police have appealed to the public to contact the nearest police station if they have information which could help in their investigation.
