UPDATE: 6:21 p.m. 2/12/14

***BREAKING: Family members of missing Carly “Charli” Scott posted an update  at 6:21 p.m. on 2/12/14 saying, “THEY HAVE JUST FOUND CHARLI’S CAR. It was found at the top of Jaws. The police have been notified.”

A search party of about 25 people departed from Haʻikū this morning bound for the Nāhiku area of East Maui as family members and friends look for 27-year-old Carly “Charli” Joann Scott who was last seen on Sunday night.

Scott is five months pregnant and has red shoulder length hair, green eyes, weighs 160 pounds, and stands 5-feet-10-inches tall. She was last seen on Sunday, Feb. 9, in a silver colored 1997 Toyota 4Runner with the Hawaiʻi plates MDE889, and a silver skull with LED eyes in the front grill.

“Panicked is the only word I can use to describe how I feel,” said Scott’s sister, Fiona Elyse McKenna Wais as she prepared to depart for Nāhiku as part of the organized search this morning.

According to Wais, Scott went to help her ex-boyfriend whose car had broken down and was stuck at around mile post 20 of the Hāna Highway on Sunday night.

Scott, who has not been seen since, was reported missing by her mother on Monday night. Scott’s dog, who was with her when she went missing, was found two days ago near the Nāhiku Market.

Family members say the search today is focused on mile marker 20 past Keʻanae and mile markers 27 to 29 in the Nāhiku area.

“She’s the most reliable person — everybody knows that,” said Wais of her sister, noting that Scott works two jobs — at the Hui Noʻeau Visual Arts Center and the Paragon Salon in Makawao.

According to Wais, Scott is usually in daily contact with family members and is “inseparable” from her younger sister.  “She would never not be in contact,” said Wais.

Family members say the Scott had some issues with her ex-boyfriend (who is the father of the unborn baby), but nothing that they know of that involved police. Despite parting ways, they remained in contact on occasion through text messaging, according to family members.

“She was exhausted and it was dark when she left,” said Wais. “I’m afraid she fell asleep at the wheel and is just waiting for someone to help,” said Wais who joined other family members last night in scouring the Hāna Highway for signs of Scott or her vehicle.

Search party member Alton Franco with Morey Inc. said his team volunteered to help in the search, which will include the use of a private helicopter tomorrow if necessary.

Others who were on hand today included trainers with Maui Dog Tags, who are assisting with ground tracking of the search area.

Maui police issued a missing person crime bulletin yesterday seeking information on Scott’s whereabouts.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Wendell Loo at (808) 270-6516 during business hours or (808) 268-2763 after hours.

Family members have also set up a Facebook page to assist in disseminating information on the search and updates regarding the case.

    sounds like a serial killer on the lose 2 women missing so far. mabe her dog can find her or if worse comes to worse call the dog wisperer who communicates with dogs.

    • Maui_Mike

      The dog whisperer does not communicate with dogs, he trains them….there is no actual language involved….

  • JumpyGathers

    Not much crime in Hawaii, but women disappearing and being found dead, or never found, happens a little too often for a population of less than 2 million people. I remember the Lisa Au case from the Eighty’s where this pretty local girl disappeared on the Pali and I don’t think they have found out yet what happened to her.

    • ronald1216

      lisa isent that the women jogger in the cainfield they found near lahaina i remember the name but not the case. alison alicatas killer from malaea kai have never been solved

      • kapena808

        Joan Kremers was the jogger. Dale Fetalvero was arrested for that murder.

        • ronald1216

        Very sad and scary. We were just talking tonight about how worried we were that this could be a possible serial killer. I didn’t know there were this many unsolved disappearances on maui. I hope they can get some leads because if there IS a predator targeting women, he/she will only get more confident and brazen if they keep getting away with it. Regardless of who it is….(ex-boyfriends, a serial killer, etc) I pray for the families and friends. :(

        • ronald1216

          someone killed the rapist who raped a women in lahaina and someone drowned a ex prison guard both witnises saying cops did it and a prison guard so is the other murders at the light house. including the girl with the cell phone

  • Not a Serial Killer

    As someone else pointed out, not a serial killer. Just a person realizing how easy it is to get rid of someone on Maui, and the authorities don’t care and don’t do anything. They don’t question obvious suspects, nor do they fill the families in on their “inspections” of the crime.

    • Guest

      I agree, is this ex boyfriend a surfer who hangs at jaws a lot?? Sounds fishy and after Bernard brown skipping island it would seem easy for people to get away with things like this.

      • Guest21

        Not a serial killer, Guess you know everything. Ever heard of probable cause? If the police don’t do a thorough job, all it takes is a suave defense attorney to have the case dismissed! You’re probably one of those jerks that think cases get solved in an hour, like on CSI. Maybe when you’re accused of something, everyone should pass judgment on you based on opinion!

  • Brian Mcc

    FYI..Her car was found “burnt out” in a pineapple field. They haven’t mentioned that in the update yet.

  • Guest

    The ex bf said he lost her headlights coming out of Hana and that he was stuck in a ditch out past Nahiku. Can anyone confirm that they saw a vehicle stuck out in a ditch in Nahiku, did they look at where he said he was stuck and can see that yes a vehicle was stuck here. Most people would stop and help someone stuck out there. Need to corroborate that story. Now they say on a “hunch” they decided to go look by Peahi…because that is where the ex bf lives…what kind of hunch? Are they insinuating that he might be suspect number 1? How do you flip a car on its side by yourself unless you ram it with another vehicle…did they examine ex bf’s vehicle? I want to know what the ex bf did Sunday night when he noticed that her headlights were not behind him? Did you just go home and say “oh she must be ok”. From the articles it does not seem that he was the one to initiate the missing person report…why is that?

    • ronald1216

      you cant tell if he had car trouble by seaing tire tracks in a ditch how he got in it dont know

  • ronald1216

    to reliable someone took advantage of her and murdered her.
