A 40-foot canoe that was reported stolen on Maui overnight, was found six miles south of Kīhei with wheels still attached.

According to the club, the canoe did not float out or drift away in the tide.

“It was locked way back from the shore and between two other canoes that were on each side and just fine,” said Mary Dungans, President of the Manaʻolana Pink Paddlers in an email to Maui Now.   “We did file a police report and called the Coast Guard.  Another canoe that was paddling this morning saw it floating and also called the Coast Guard, and they responded.  They were looking for people in the water but did not find anyone,” she said.
