Search for woman shifts to Hana

The search for missing Makawao woman Carly “Charli” Scott has turned to the outer reaches of East Maui, a family member said.

On Saturday and Sunday, the search group met at the Maui Invasive Species Committee baseyard near Mile Marker 32 along Hana Highway, said Scott’s sister Fiona Elyse McKenna Wais. She said about 55 to 70 family members and volunteers conducted searches in Hana, including Sunday’s search, which primarily focused between Mile Markers 46 and 56, or areas makai of the Hana Forest Reserve.

“We don’t have any updates,” Wais said in a phone interview Sunday morning. “So far we’ve just had search parties going out, but we’re starting to need more supplies for the amount of people who are volunteering.

“Everybody has been really helpful and great, but the more people that can meet, the more opportunities we have and chances of finding her. We need all the eyes we can get.”

Scott, 27, who is five months pregnant, was last seen at about 8 p.m. Feb. 9 at her sister’s home in Haiku. Family members said that Scott left the house to help her ex-boyfriend, whose car had broken down around Mile Marker 20 on Hana Highway in Keanae.

On Sunday, Scott’s sister Phaedra Wais said that the baby is a boy and that Scott had considered naming him Joshua Aiden Scott. Family members identified the baby’s father as ex-boyfriend Steven Capobianco.

Maui Police Department spokesman Lt. William Juan said there were no updates in the case as of Sunday afternoon.

Family members said that food, water and monetary donations can be dropped off at the Haiku Community Center between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily.
