Ms Schwartz,

Can you please tell us which agency would have records responsive to this request? We would like to file a request with the most appropriate agency.

Thank you,

From: Hawaii Department of Public Safety

You may want to try the county police. Most missing people reports are usually called in to one of the four counties (Honolulu, Kauai, Maui and Hawaii County).

Thank you,

Hawaii Department of Public Safety
