Friends and family of a missing pregnant Maui woman will meet this morning to resume a search, focusing on the Hāna Highway between Haʻikū and Keʻanae.

Carly “Charli” Joann Scott, 27, was last seen on Sunday night in Haʻikū and was last known to have left the area to assist her ex-boyfriend who family members say asked for help in getting his car out of a ditch in the East Maui area near mile post 20 of the Hāna Highway.

The woman’s dog, who was with her when she went missing, was found near the Nāhiku Market Place, and family members say her vehicle was located last night in Peʻahi mauka of the surf spot known as “Jaws.”

A search party will meet today at 8 a.m. at the Door of Faith road in Huelo.

    I hope they find her! After reading the Facebook comments people don’t know what goes on in a case! The way the justice system works if you hold someone more than 3 days you have to charge them with the crime, MPD is building a case and once it’s built and complete and have all the evidence and know he is the one who committed the crime they will get a warrant for his arrest!! Too many people watching CSI Miami and Hawaii 5-0

  • stand alone

    Wow, after reading the comments on face book I wonder where is these people is getting their info from? —- Prayer to the mother/ child and her family.

    Normally, the police would give out bulletins on the progress of the investigation. Has the MPD done this yet? Thanks to Maui Now for staying on top of these stories. All 3 of them.

      Giving out information can hamper an investigation don’t you think? If they know who did it and I’m sure they have a good idea, it’s harder to pin it on a suspect or catch them in a lie if all the details have been posted for the world to know.
