The Hawaiʻi Police Department is asking for the public’s help in locating 27-year-old Kyle Brittain who is reported as missing.

He was last seen near the Waipio Valley lookout area on the morning of Friday, Aug. 30, 2019. He had informed family members that he was going hiking for the day on the transverse trail in Waipio Valley toward Waimanu Valley. He has not returned or been heard from by family and friends since.
