Sept. 1 Update: Hawaiʻi Island police report that 36-year-old Joseph Narzisi and 29-year-old Aliana Akana, who had previously been reported as being wanted, were both arrested without incident in Kona early Thursday evening, Aug. 31.

Original post: Hawaiʻi Island police are renewing their request and asking for the public’s assistance locating 36-year-old Joseph Narzisi of Kailua-Kona, who is wanted on an outstanding felony Parole Violation warrant.  

Narzisi is described as 5-feet-10 inches tall, 180 pounds, with blue eyes and brown hair. He is known to frequent the Kailua-Kona and Oceanview areas. 


Narzisi was involved in two separate traffic collisions where he fled the scenes before officers arrived. He is known to be armed with a firearm and is considered armed and dangerous. The public is urged to use caution and not attempt to contact Narzisi.

Narzisi is accompanied by 29-year-old Aliana Akana of Kailua-Kona, who is wanted on an outstanding bench warrant and three separate theft-type investigations.  Akana is also a person of interest in a Hindering Prosecution investigation.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Joseph Narzisi and Aliana Akana are encouraged to contact Officer Curry McFadden at 808-326-4646, extension 253, or via email at [email protected]. They may also contact the police department’s non-emergency number at 808-935-3311.

First-degree Hindering Prosecution is a class C felony, and second-degree Hindering Prosecution is a misdemeanor.
