He was last seen on California Avenue near Dole Road, a Honolulu Police Department spokeswoman said.

The victim, whose age was not given, had been taken to Wahiawa General in a private vehicle. The EMS crew responded to the hospital, treated the victim and transferred him in serious condition to a trauma center.
