By PIERS FULLER Lookout for lifejacket The family of missing South Wairarapa fisherman Tupara Kiel is still holding out hope for some sign of what happened to him. There is a possibility the 72-year- old Martinborough man lost off the Tora Coast may have had a heart attack as there was a report from a coastal walker who saw what looked like a man lying down in a small boat around the time Mr Kiel is thought to have gone missing. Mr Kiel's son-in-law, Ray Thomp- son, of Greytown, says they are still searching for clues along the coast. Mr Kiel's wife, Lola Kiel, intends to spend two more weeks looking for signs of her husband. Finding his lifejacket would bring some kind of finality to the search. She just wants to find something for closure,'' Mr Thompson says. Mr Kiel bought the inflatable boat not long before the tragedy near Sandy Bay and it was only his sec- ond time out in it when he went missing. Family members are still wondering why he decided to go out in choppy conditions. No-one understands why he would launch in gale force winds,'' Mr Thompson says, but he suspects that Mr Kiel may have thought he could shelter in the lee of the rocks on the point to lay the crayfish pot and then come back to shore. He says his father-in-law was an adventurous man who had taken risks all his life and always managed to scrape through, so they are devastated that this time he was unable to make it. He's survived incidents in the past and we fully expected him to survive this one, too.'' It was three weeks ago this Thurs- day that Mr Kiel went missing. Mr Thompson is hoping that some- one will find Mr Kiel's lifejacket. It is a Platinum Excalibur PFD Type 1, adult large. He believes there are many possible scenarios of what happened and if the lifejacket is found north of the Sandy Bay it could mean that Mr Kiel was wearing it when he fell out of the boat because the sea current heads north. If the lifejacket is found to the south then it may mean that it was in the boat but was never put on and somehow made it into the sea because the wind on the day was blowing southwards and may have blown the lifejacket towards Cook Strait. If anyone has any information regarding Mr Kiel or the missing lifejacket, please contact the Wairarapa police.
