Firefighters launched a search for a pair of hikers reported missing in the “Commando Trail” area of Haʻikū in East Maui on Friday night, Aug. 14, 2015.

The incident was reported at 7:05 p.m. by a friend who called emergency responders to report the hikers overdue.  Authorities say the men — a 28-year-old and a 43-year-old — failed to pick up a friend from work as planned.

Fire officials say their car was found still parked at the “Commando” trailhead in Haʻikū on Friday evening.
