A Haiku teen who has been missing since January was added to a national list that tracks missing and exploited children.  Sage Barron, 16, was reported missing on January 8, 2011.  The National Center of Missing & Exploited Children describes Barron as 5-feet 6-inches tall, weighing 100 pounds, with brown eyes and sandy hair.

There are only 11 Hawaii children on the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) list, which includes the high profile case of Peter Kema Jr. who went missing in 1997.

The only other Maui person still included on the list is Noquisi-Ama Blossom of Makawao who was reported missing on June 22, 1980 at the age of 14.  The center has an age progressed image to show what she would look like today at the age of 30.
