Gomes has no distinguishing scars or marks, but does have a tattoo of a dove on her right shoulder. She was last seen wearing a woodland camouflage jacket, black pants, and unknown footwear.

Police ask anyone who may have any information on the whereabouts of Gomes to contact the Hawaii Police Department’s non-emergency line at 808-935-3311.
