Maui crews unable to confirm report of missing paddle boarders

By Star-Advertiser staff


Maui firefighters called off a search for two female paddle boarders after they could not confirm that anyone was missing at sea.

A man called firefighters about 9:15 a.m. Saturday and said he saw the paddlers about 1 mile outside the beach fronting Kealia Pond, but then lost sight of them, a Maui Fire Department spokesman said.

Firefighters launched an air, land, and sea search and received assistance from the Coast Guard.

Authorities decided to call off the search about 12:30 p.m. after no family or friends reported the paddlers missing. The search will resume if family or friends report the pair missing, the spokesman said.
