HALAWA (HawaiiNewsNow) - Fire department officials say three men, ages 27, 17, and 13, along with a 7-year-old girl, went into the valley with several dogs early Wednesday morning. A fifth man, who entered the valley with the group, left at approximately 11 a.m. to go to work.
His departure marked the last time the group was seen or heard from. They are believed to be in an area that has limited cell reception.
A fire department spokesperson says a woman, identified as the girlfriend of the 27-year-old man and the mother of the 7-year-old girl, reported the group missing when they hadn't returned by 1 a.m. on Thursday morning.
