Hegent is described as Caucasian, standing at 5-feet, 5-inches tall, weighing 140 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes. She has a leopard-print tattoo on her neck and upper back, and “love/hate” tattoos on her wrists.
Police ask anyone who may have information on Hegent’s whereabouts to contact the department’s non-emergency line at (808) 935-3311.
Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call the island-wide Crime Stoppers number at (808) 961-8300 and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
