Police locate woman reported missing by family

The Maui News

A woman who arrived on Maui on Tuesday and was reported missing Thursday has been found in good health, according to the Maui Police Department.

Martina Sharica Wilson had been reported missing by a family member at 9:47 a.m. Thursday. Her last contact had been via FaceTime at about 8 a.m. the previous day from a mall area in Kahului, police said. Several attempts by the family to contact Wilson were unsuccessful.

Wilson had arrived on Maui on Tuesday and indicated she would be staying in Honokohau Valley, but gave no specific residence or address, according to a police investigation. She had no known return flight information. According to a family member, Wilson had said she was moving to Maui to become a “holistic teacher/healer at a local village.”

She was described as a 26-year-old Black woman at 5 feet 3 inches tall and 150 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes, going by the nickname “Marmar.”

When asked how Wilson had gotten past airport screeners, who typically call the place of lodging for arriving travelers to ensure they follow quarantine, Maui Airports District Manager Marvin Moniz said Sunday that a residence in Honokohau “took responsibility for Wilson, from confirming her stay in there to providing phone contacts.” His understanding was that there were phone problems in the valley that led to “some concerns and confusion.”

Wilson was found in good health as of 11:46 a.m. Saturday, said police, who thanked the public for their calls in response to a social media post seeking information on Wilson.
