The Maui Police Department has narrowed its list of unaccounted for individuals from the Aug. 8 Lahaina wildfire to 12 people. The updated list was released on Friday, Sept. 29, 2023, and includes the following names:
|REFERENCE ID||First Name||Last Name|
All individuals included on the updated list have had an MPD missing person report filed on their behalf.
To date, Maui police say there are an estimated 97 fatalities from the Lahaina fire. Police have identified 90 individuals publicly following notification of next of kin. Another individual has been identified, but their family has not been notified or located.
If you believe an individual is still unaccounted for and their name is not included on the credible list of names, contact the MPD at 808-244-6400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to file a missing person report.
If you are an immediate family member (parent, sibling, or child) of an individual you believe is still unaccounted for, live on Maui, and want to provide a DNA sample to assist with the identification process, call 808-270-7771.
If you live outside of Maui, please contact the FBI at 808-566-4300 or go to www.fbi.gov/MauiFires to receive instructions on how you may provide your DNA in this effort.
