WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) — Technology is becoming a vital element in the search for a woman who went missing in a rural Hawaii forest.
Volunteers searching for 35-year-old Amanda Heller are employing GPS devices and computers with live feeds and real-time data from the parking lot of the Makawao Forest Reserve on Maui, The Maui News reported Monday.
There is no evidence of foul play, but police said they continue to investigate.
Eller, who was last seen May 8, is believed to be lost in the reserve near her home in Haiku, where her vehicle was found. Friends have said she liked to run and hike.
Chris Berquist and others have coordinated the search by deploying volunteers with GPS apps for iPhones and Android devices.
