Harvard-educated Sonam Saxena, 43, reported his wife Smriti missing on Tuesday claiming the 41-year-old mother-of-two had vanished during a late night stroll on a secluded beach south of Anaehoomalu Bay, in South Kohala.

He said: ‘She got an asthma attack right there on the beach and she was feeling weak and she didn’t want to walk all the way back because it’s almost a 20-minute walk back from that beach to our room.

“So, I said,” hey, you know what? You stay here, you have your phone with you and I’ll just go to the room grab your inhaler and pump and come back. ‘

When he returned ’40 to 50 minutes’ later he found her purse, phone, credit card and driver’s license were all there but she had gone.

He said: ‘I was disturbed because why would she leave her purse and her phone on the beach and head back to the room.

“It just seemed really odd,” he said. ‘So I rushed back to the room. I checked the room and I saw that she wasn’t in the room. So I went down stairs and that’s when I dialed 911. “

Saxena said police and security officers helped scour the area.

“We called out for her but there was nothing,” he said. “No response.”

Police released an appeal to find Smriti saying she was last seen around 10:30 am wearing a black dress with a multicolored floral design and a black jacket.

The pair, married for 17 years with two children, ages 13 and 8, come to Hawaii every year to celebrate their eldest child’s birthday.

Prior to graduating from Harvard Business School in General Management, Saxena earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Nautical Science from Mumbai University
