The FBI reports the number of unaccounted for will fluctuate as they merge lists from various sources. On Aug. 22, the agency said the unaccounted for list had the names of between 1,000 and 1,100 individuals.  On Aug. 24, Maui County officials released a list of 388 people  who have been reported as unaccounted for from the Aug. 8 Lahaina wildfire disaster. The list was narrowed by utilizing criteria that included first and last name and a human source that provided it.  Now, Maui police say

Maui Police Chief John Pelletier said the Maui Police Department is working on what he is calling a “credible list,” which is expected to be released on Friday. He said more than 200 people responded to the department’s email [email protected] after releasing the narrowed list last week. According to Chief Pelletier, 110 missing person reports have been filed with the department.
