"Amanda Eller, of Haiku, was reported missing on Thursday after not having been seen since 7:30 a.m. the day before, the Maui Police Department said in a news release.

Around noon on Thursday, Eller's Toyota RAV4 was found in a parking lot of the Makawao Forest Reserve in Maui County, officials said. According to a "Findamanda" Facebook page, authorities who found the car did not yet know that Eller was missing.

Eller's family believes she may have gone running in the national forest, because her teal sneakers were missing, while her wallet and cellphone remained inside.

"Amanda may have gone running, it was her day off and this is a common place for her," a missing poster for the 35-year-old stated. "It is also normal that she would leave her cell behind. Her car key was found hidden under the driver's side front tire."

Her friend, Sarah Haynes, told Hawaii News Now that "it's not out of the ordinary for her to go there," and added: “It appears to us at this point that she is either way off the trail — you know having gotten injured, or fallen maybe — or somebody interrupted her between her car and her run."

Hikers in Makawao believe they saw Eller around 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., and one couple believe they spoke to her, according to the Facebook group to find her.

"They had a puppy with them and she talked to them and pet the puppy, and was her happy normal self," the post stated. "They are not 100 percent sure it is her, but they have since watched videos of her and are pretty confident."

She's been found alive!!!


"After being missing for two weeks, Maui hiker Amanda Eller has been found, says her father.

"She was trying to find her way back and just got lost in the terrain," he said.

According to a findamanda Facebook page post, she was found injured in a ravine near a waterfall by air search.

Eller's mother, Julia, said she received word around 3:30 p.m. on Friday, May 24.

Search team members Javier Cantellops and Chris Berquist discovered Eller three miles south of an area called Bamboo Forest. "

A most welcomed result due to a fly over search. ;)
I saw the videos of her when found, very much thinner and sunburned, but she'd stayed hydrated from a river after falling down into a crevice between a water fall and had a broken her lower leg and had a bad burn on it, but by eating fruit, berries and bugs, and covering herself with palm fronds or mud to keep warm at night as she slept.
Her well conditioned body from yoga and basic knowledge of survival skills saved her life.
She said, "It got to a point where it was life or death, and I chose life, I chose to survive.". (pph)
A wonderful ending in comparison to most of our missing person stories!
