KONA, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii Island police have identified the body of the woman found Monday (June 1) in Umauma Stream.

She was identified through fingerprints as 62-year-old Bobbie Jackie Carnathan of Kailua-Kona, who was reported missing last Saturday.

An autopsy determined that she died from traumatic injuries consistent with a fall from a height. Police do not suspect foul play.

Detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section continue to investigate this incident, which is classified as a coroner's inquest. They ask witnesses who may have seen Carnathan on a “Hele On” bus or who had any contact with her at the World Botanical Gardens and Waterfalls park in Hakalau to contact Detective Dean Uyetake at 961-2379 ordean.uyetake@hawaiicounty.gov

A Facebook page created to help find Carnathan says she went zip-lining by herself and ate lunch with other people on the tour. Then, the Facebook page says, "She had two hours to kill before the bus came back to pick her up, so we suspect she walked/hiked somewhere."
