The police in Hawaii are desperately looking for two hikers who disappeared six weeks apart in separate incidents on two different islands.
The Californian woman, Khiara Henry, 23, was last seen in Maui on July 21 after renting a car in Kahului. The solo traveler's vehicle was found by the police in the Waianapanapa Park area on July 25.
Her family has since flown in from San Diego and offers a $ 10,000 reward to anyone who gives the first tip to find Henry or the person responsible for her disappearance.
Kyle Brittain, 27, went on August 30 for his regular hike on Big Island in Hawaii and told his family that he would cover only some of the 12-mile Z Trail from Waipio Valley leading to a 1200 ft peak toward Waimanu Valley climbs.

Brittain – described as & # 39; extremely dense & # 39; at his family – his truck parked in the Waipo parking lot at the start of the trail and was last seen by the bathrooms.
The missing man had agreed to call his parents when he had completed the course, but they never received a call and there was still no sign of him at the end of the search day on Monday 10.
& # 39; It was about 6 o'clock & # 39; In the morning, someone saw him at the Waipio Overlook bathroom and asked where the bathroom was and said, "Hey, have a nice day," and that was the last time, "Kyle said," # 39; s father, Steve Brittain.
The police found Henry's rental car in Wainapanapa Park, where she had traveled for three days before driving there

A $ 10,000 reward has been offered for all information that led to the discovery of Henry or someone responsible for her disappearance
Henry was reported missing by her family on July 26 and the police investigation stopped after five days
Henry is missing nearly two months after traveling alone to Hawaii
& # 39; There was a phone on the mountain at 8.30 am, or exactly there, so we know it was there and then it lost the service. & # 39;
Steve believes that hundreds of walkers were on the road because it was Labor Day weekend when his son went missing.
Kyle Brittain lacks timeline
Friday, August 30: 06.00 am – Kyle starts hiking in Waipio Valley (Big Island) after parking his truck near Waipio Trail Parking. At 9 pm, attempts to contact Kyle failed.
Saturday, August 31: 6 p.m. – A missing report filed with the Hawaii police.
Sunday, September 1: Hawaii Police Department and Hilo fire start searching.
Monday, September 2: 9:00 AM – Searching continues. Family, friends and volunteers participate.
Search dogs from Kauai are used to help with the search and drones fly over Waipio Valley to get a better view. There are approximately 30 volunteers searching the path.
Wednesday, September 4: Official search ends.
Thursday, September 5: Family receives a tip about a set of keys that were seen a week ago by the river in Waipio, but it is unclear whether they belong to Brittain.
Friday, September 6: Search team that has found the missing Maui walker, Amanda Eller, flies to hunt along.
Heather Lee Saenz, Brittain's sister-in-law, said he is now unavailable by phone. Lee wrote on a crowdfunding page: & # 39; We all made an effort to call and track him in vain. His phone is dead or broken without contact with anyone. & # 39;
The family – who shared an image of Brittain at the age of eight walking in Half Dome in Yosemite National Park – is unaware of the supplies he took or what he carried on the day he disappeared.
Last Thursday, however, loved ones shared on Facebook that they had received a tip a week ago about a set of keys at the river in Waipio. They were busy finding the keys, but didn't know if they belonged to Brittain.
Just a few days in, seekers had already traveled Switchback Trail and Waimanu Trail unsuccessfully, and on Friday the same team flew to hunt for the missing Maui walker Amanda Eller.
His mother also flew in from Honolulu.
Brittain's lovers were looking for $ 100,000 through a GoFundMe page to pay the costs of helicopters, dogs, and other help from rescuers. $ 25,981 was collected by Tuesday.
Police, on the other hand, found Henry & # 39; s ID, luggage, and credit card left in her rental car, but her cell phone, backpack, and keys were not in the vehicle being towed from the 112-hectare park in Hana.
Her family said in a tearing video statement that Henry had made a group trip to Waianapanapa Park on July 18-21 and would fly home on July 29.
Kyle Brittain was supposed to call his parents after his walk, but lovers couldn't reach Brittain on his cell phone

At the end of day 10, search teams had no luck in searching for Brittain on Monday
The mileage of the vehicle showed that she had not deviated from the route back to the park on the day she was last seen, so the authorities believe she intended to return and spend the night in her last week.
Maui PD said they received & # 39; different leads, but none of these could be confirmed & # 39 ;.
The police stopped searching for Henry for five days, but the members of Maui Search and Rescue continued. By Tuesday, $ 1,015 was raised from a $ 100,000 goal on one GoFundMe page.
