Coast Guard suspends search for missing airplane off Maui

By Star-Advertiser staff

POSTED:



The Coast Guard today suspended the search for a Maui man flying in a privately owned light airplane that disappeared from the radar while traveling from Maui to Molokai Saturday night.

A debris field that appeared to be from the aircraft was spotted about 2 miles north of Maui.

The determination to suspend the search for Jose Krall was made at 3 p.m. Monday, pending further information.

"The decision to suspend a search is one of the hardest a commanding officer has to make," said Capt. Joanna Nunan, the Coast Guard Sector Honolulu commanding officer. "Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family and friends of Mr. Krall during this difficult time."
