Hawaii's war on drugs isn't limited to just illegal narcotics like meth or marijuana. Why the state also wants you to hand over your expired prescription drugs this weekend.

NEW ON KHNL AT 5:30: UPDATE ON MISSING HAWAII MAN

Tonight on Hawaii News Now at 5:30, an update to a story we first reported last week. One year ago, a Philadelphia man clicked on a website for missing children, and found a picture of himself. What happened from there, is truly amazing.

Also tonight, why today is transition day for our island weather. Guy Hagi will have your complete forecast, starting at 5.

These are just some of the stories when you join Stephanie Lum and me at 5 and 5:30.

See you then!

Aloha,

Shawn Ching
