Samuel Joseph Martinez Missing – Help Locate Samuel Joseph Martinez
The 23-years-old boy was reported Missing and research still continues for him. Samuel was studying microbiology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln before he flew to the Hawaiian island of Kauai on May 12 with plans to spend nearly two weeks hiking and camping.
His family hasn’t heard from him since a few hours after he landed on Kauai, his father, Ted Martinez, said last weekend.
Samuel Martinez had eight permits to camp at different locations around Kauai.
Ted Martinez said the family, of North Bend, Nebraska, filed a missing persons report with Lincoln Police last Wednesday, a day after Samuel Martinez missed his flight home.
Extensive land and air searches began Sunday with a focus on Kokee and Waimea state parks, including the Kukui Trail, Sugi Grove, the Alakai Trail and Kalalau Beach.
Anyone with information that can help Locate Samuel is asked to call The Garden Island or 911.
