***An update on the search effort is now posted at the following direct LINK.
A search is planned this morning for a missing 27-year old Makawao woman who is five months pregnant.
Family members and friends of Carly “Charli” Joann Scott plan to meet at 9 a.m. at the Haʻikū Community Center for an organized search.
The search follows information that Scott may be in the Hāna or Nāhiku area. Those close to the woman learned that her dog, Nala, was found two days ago by the Nāhiku Market.
Carly Joann Scott is described as 27 years old with red shoulder length hair, green eyes, weighing 160 pounds, and standing 5-feet-10-inches tall.
She was last seen in a sliver colored 1997 Toyota 4Runner with the Hawaiʻi plates MDE889, and a silver skull with LED eyes in the front grill.
Maui police issued a missing person crime bulletin seeking information on Scott, who was last seen at around 8 p.m. on Sunday, at her sister’s home in Haʻikū.
She was reported missing on Monday night by her mother, who tells police that Scott would not just up and leave without telling anyone.
Authorities say the concerned mother did not hear from her daughter on Monday, and checked at her Makawao home, but could not locate the woman.
At this time, police say there are no known medical issues.
Anyone with information is asked to call Maui Police Detective Wendell Loo at (808) 270-6516 during business hours or (808) 268-2763 after hours.
