The clothing of a missing Maui woman who is five months pregnant has been found; but the search for 27-year-old Carly “Charli” Scott continues with air and ground assets scheduled to resume today.

Sources tell Maui Now that the woman’s sisters confirmed that clothes belonging to Charli were found on Thursday, Feb. 13, near mile marker 14 to 18, at a beach near Honomanū off of the Hāna Highway.

The finding comes a day after the woman’s burned 4Runner was located in Peʻahi on its side, mauka of the surf spot known as “Jaws.”

A search party plans to meet again at 8 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 14, at the Haʻikū Community Center to resume the search.

In an online message, friends and family thanked the many hands that contributed to the search so far.

“The kindness and love expressed by everyone who has helped in our search has shown us the true aloha spirit,” the message said.

Family members say they have received repeated requests from individuals wanting to help through financial support, and have since set up a Paypal account at findcharliscottdonations@gmail.com where donations can be made.

Background Information:

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

The woman’s ex-boyfriend, Steven Capobianco, spoke in an interview with Mileka Lincoln of Hawaii News Now, in which he answered questions about his account of what happened on Sunday night. He claimed that after he got his truck back on the road, they drove back in separate vehicles and he lost sight of her headlights around the Twin Falls area. Capobianco didn’t suspect anything was wrong. (That transcript can be found here.)

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

A search on Thursday involved both land and air assets and was focused on the coastline and area along the Hāna Highway from Haʻikū to Keʻanae.

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

Family and friends also launched an online anonymous tip survey where the public can provide anonymous tips on Scott’s whereabouts or information that led to her disappearance.

Family members have been providing updates via a Facebook page to assist in disseminating information regarding the case.

    go in the direction of the vehicals front wheels this indicates where the driver went also the direction of the clothes

  • Hopeful

    Has anyone thought to check the scrap metal yards? If the car was stripped, perhaps they’d need to get cash for the parts. Look for motives.

  • malia saunders

    I cant beleave this! I think the maui police department should really pay attention to the person that she gave a ride to “supposedly”to get his truck he says. Something doesn’t sound right. I think he killed her and stashed her body in a cave or pushed her off the cliff and her body is on the side of the cliff naked rolled in mud. Then the dog ran away and he drove her vehicle back to jaws and thought he could light it on fire to get rid of the evidence . ONLY DUMB STEVEN!! YOu go boy. Right to jail! And your sick.

  • Me

    Don’t think the dog ran away. I think the dog was taken the 20 miles away to prevent the discovery of the body. The dog would have probably stayed with his master and guarded her. The dog would have been friendly toward Steven. I wonder how Steven got from his vehicle to his home after he went into the ditch and why did he call her. When did he run off into the ditch? Doesn’t he have any male friends who could have assisted him.
