According to a news release sent out a little after midnight on June 11, the Maui Police Department is looking for a missing person and wants the public’s help. His name is Kency Besiko and he’s from the Marshall Islands. He’s been missing since June 9:
“On June 9th, 2015 at about 02:00 p.m. Kency BESIKO arrived to Maui from the Marshall Islands. He then walked from the airport to his cousin’s apartment and left his belongings there. BESIKO left on foot without disclosing where he was headed. On June 10, 2015 at approximately 04:15 p.m., a family member reported that Kency BESIKO, has not been seen since his arrival to Maui.”
The MPD says Besiko was last seen at his cousin’s house in Kahului. It’s apparently Besiko’s first time on Maui, and his family is understandably concerned.
“Police conducted checks at the hospitals, correctional center, airport, and malls,” stated the MPD news release. “[H]owever, [they] were unsuccessful in locating Kency BESIKO. He does not have a cell phone and is probably traveling on foot.”
Here’s a physical description of Besiko taken straight from the MPD press release:
