Police: Man waited with missing 2-year-old who wandered from Kalihi home

KALIHI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A 2-year-old who wandered away from her Kalihi home Wednesday was found safe about three hours after she went missing.

The girl, Mika Garen, walked away from her home near Kaumualii Street about 1 p.m.

Police said the girl was being watched by her grandmother and apparently walked off. That’s when a man found her about 100 yards from her home. Police said the man waited with her for about an hour before taking her to his family’s home and calling police.

Meanwhile, police launched a frantic search for the girl, using a police helicopter and patrol officers to look for her.

Authorities are continuing their investigation. Child Welfare Services has been notified.
