WINDWARD (KHNL) -- Ocean Safety and Lifeguard Services Division warned people to stay out of the waters off four popular beach parks Saturday night.

A shark was spotted 200 yards off shore of Kalama Beach in Kailua Bay around 4:30 p.m. Around the same time, a swimmer was reported missing. Chopper 8 caught the crews searching for the shark and the missing person.

But according to Captain Terry Seelig of the Honolulu Fire Department, the reports of the missing person were not true. HFD combed through the coast of Bellows Beach and Kailua Beach Park for the body of the missing person but did not find anything.

Instead they spotted the shark in the waters.

Meanwhile, there was another scare on the shore near Castle Beach as intestinal remains washed up. The police, lifeguards and the Department of Land and Natural Resources responded. It is not known if they are human remains and they were turned over to emergency services.

The public is warned to stay out of the water at the following beaches until further notice: Bellows Beach Park, Kailua Beach Park, Waimanalo Bay Beach Park and Waimanalo Beach Park.
