Search Scaled Back for Missing “Charli” Scott
By Wendy Osher
The ongoing search for a missing pregnant woman on Maui has been scaled back to focus on the weekends.
Family members of Carly “Charli” Joann Scott released a statement saying the revised schedule is necessary to allow them to return to work.
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 known to have left the Haʻikū area two weeks ago on Feb. 9, to assist her ex-boyfriend, who family members say asked for help in getting his car pulled out of an area near mile marker 20 of the Hāna Highway.
Family members say they hope the manpower devoted to the search remains strong.
The complete text of the message from family members is posted below:
STATEMENT FROM THE FAMILY OF “CHARLI” SCOTT, 2/24/14:
“We want to thank you ALL for all your support, emotional and physical in the search for Charli. It has been a comfort to us to know that we are not searching for her alone, that she is loved, that she is missed, that she is wanted HOME.
Because it is necessary for each one of us to return to work, we want to ask you all to continue to look no matter where you go- but our group search times will have to change now. We will not give up searching, but we will have to do so on the weekends now. So we will continue to post here Find Chari Scott and let you all know what we are doing every weekend- where we will be searching, and what time. We hope that this will not decrease the turn outs for searches as we still need the man/woman power that you all have so freely given.
We are determined to FIND HER AND BRING HER AND HER BABY HOME TO US.
And your help is extremely valuable to us.
Please don’t forget about Charli and her baby…..
We are forever grateful.
