FBI list of unaccounted for individuals from Lahaina fire drops to 66
The Maui Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation released a new list of the names of unaccounted for individuals from the Aug. 8 wildfire in Lahaina, saying the number has dropped to 66 as of Sept. 8.
The new list of 66 individuals is down from the 385 names released last week, and the 388 names released the week before. Prior to that, there were more than 3,200 names compiled from various lists. The FBI determined that at least 2,696 are safe and created the updated “credible” lists by including the names of people for which a first and last name was provided and a verified contact number was available for the person who reported them missing.
Currently, 53 individuals from last week’s list are still unaccounted for and remain on today’s list. Also, four individuals from last week’s list have since been identified as deceased, according to Maui police.
Police say 13 additional names were added, as provided by the following: MPD missing persons reports (which are marked with an asterisk), reports from the American Red Cross, reports from the shelters, as well as individuals who called in to report unaccounted for but did not file a police report.
In addition, 80 names of possible unaccounted for are not included on the list because each of those reports are still being vetted for credibility. In these cases, no initial reporting party was provided or was available for follow-up.
The names on the latest “credible list” were compiled by the FBI and were deemed credible as long as the following criteria were provided:
- The first and last name of the person who is unaccounted for;
- A verified contact number for the person who reported the individual as unaccounted for; and/or
- Additional verified information received reporting the individual as unaccounted for.
The MPD needs the public’s help in providing information on anyone who is reported unaccounted for and whose name is on this list but knows the person can be accounted for.
“We need your help in locating as many of these unaccounted for individuals as possible. If you recognize a name on the list and know the person to be safe or if you have additional information about the person that may help us to locate them, please call the FBI at 888-814-7693 or reach us at www.fbi.gov/MauiFires to provide us with any information you may have,” authorities said in a press release announcement.
