A 44 year-old man may still be missing this morning after search efforts were called off late Friday night. The man was reported missing by fellow hikers on July 4th near an area known as Plenty Kiawe near MP 31 of the upper Pi’ilani Highway.
At 3:09 p.m. Maui Fire and Rescue crews, engine 13 and Air-1 began a search when fellow campers reported the man missing. The search was suspended pending more information from Maui Police. MPD is taking the lead on the investigation. Given the scarcity of details, we use the term “may” still be missing until police verify that a person is actually missing or if other status exists.
