Firefighters suspend search for missing man on Big Island

Hawaii County firefighters have suspended their three-day ocean and land search for a missing man in the area of Hookena Beach Park.

The Fire Department said a local man was last seen at the beach park by campers on Thursday.

The Fire Department received a call Sunday night from police asking for help in searching for him because his vehicle remained at the park, but he had not been seen.

Some of his belongings were found in a cave, and fire personnel began searching Sunday night.

The search continued on land Monday, and divers searched Wednesday and Thursday.

A fire rescue boat and eight fire rescue personnel were involved in the search.

The Coast Guard assisted the Fire Department with radio communication on the marine channel for the missing person with no results.

The Fire Department did not find any further evidence or leads, so the search was concluded Wednesday.
