Hawai’i Island Police are continuing to search for a 65-year-old Kailua-Kona woman who was reported as missing on Monday morning and would particularly like those who were in the vicinity of Old Airport Park starting at 8:30 am to consider if they may have seen something.

She is considered endangered as she is in need of medication for a medical condition.

Kunzang Yuthok was last seen on Nov. 20 in Old Airport Park, having left the parking lot of the Kona Aquatic Center at approximately 8:30 am. Yuthok is described as Asian, 5-feet-3-inches, 110 pounds with brown eyes and shoulder length salt and pepper hair. She was last seen wearing a black shirt, black shorts, glasses and light blue walking shoes in the Old Airport Park at approximately 9:15 am.
