The search is still on for Noah “Kekai” Mina, as Maui police and emergency personnel continue to look for the 35-year-old hiker who has been missing since departing for a hike last week. Mina’s disappearance comes just after a Maui-based yoga teacher was found and rescued after being lost in a vast, Hawaiian forest reserve for 17 days.
Amanda Eller, 35, was rescued on May 25 after she went missing in Kahului. When she was finally discovered by rescue personnel, Eller was malnourished with a broken leg, sunburns as well as a torn meniscus, according to the New York Times.
Following Eller’s rescue, Mina’s family holds out similar hope that he will also be found alive.
