Maui police are continuing to follow up on leads on a missing 35-year-old woman who was last seen on May 8.

Police said they received a 911 call Tuesday from an area above the Makawao Forest Reserve concerning possible additional information on the missing person investigation of Amanda Eller.

“Although we’ve classified this case as a missing person and have no evidence to suggest otherwise, Detectives from our Crimes Against Persons Unit are meticulously sorting through all the information and data we’ve obtained to find Ms. Amanda Eller. In addition, officers attached to our Special Response Team have put in many miles searching the denser sections of the forest reserve. We are grateful for the many tips and bits of information we received from the general public,” said Assistant Chief of Police Victor Ramos of the Maui Police Department’s Investigative Services Bureau in a news release issued Wednesday.

Dozens of volunteers are also involved in the search.

According to a Facebook page, “Find Amanda Eller,” Eller was at the Haiku Market at approximately 10:10 a.m. on May 8 where she purchased items.

A surveillance video showed images of Eller at the grocery store. She went to the post office thereafter to mail a package to her mother for Mother’s Day.

Police said her Toyota RAV4 was found in the parking lot of the Makawao Forest Reserve on May 9. She is known to go running in the area.

Her wallet and cell phone were in the vehicle.

Eller is described as 5 feet, 8 inches, 145 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a white tank top, light-blue or green sports bra and dark blue capri yoga pants.

Anyone with information on Eller’s whereabouts is urged to call the Maui Police Department at 911 or 244-6400.
