Dear Hawaii fellow geocachers,

 

my very dear friend Kimberly from Waikiki has been missing since 21st August.

Her family and friends are very concerned and worried and desperate for any information that could shed some light on her disappearance.

 

I know there are a few caches in the area where she lives. We even found one together (her GC nick is warmestaloha).

Maybe some of you were out that day and did see something or maybe you can watch out for her when you are out hiking, you never know....

We just don't know anymore where she could be.

 

Here are some links to her story in the local media with photos of her:

For those of you who would like to help, there will be another search for Kim today. I wish I could join, but I am not on the islands anymore. Unfortunately.

Mahalo for reading

Here's the info from Kim's family:

We are going to do another search for Kimberly Jacobs on Sunday near Ala Moana Center, Wal-Mart, the Prince Hotel, the Tradewinds condo, and the boat harbor.

 

We would love to have as many people as possible join us. Please ask friends, family, and co-workers to join us. At 5:30 PM let's meet in Ala Moana Shopping Center's parking lot at the corner of Ala Moana Blvd and Atkinson as close to the stop light as possible. We would need to enter from Atkinson across from Yacht Harbor Tower. We will also try to get some press coverage- if you can help with that wonderful.

 

Mahalo,

 

Stan

Any word yet?

 

Been praying

 

Thank you ferventkids!!

 

Here is a recollection of what we know so far. Written by the friend, who reported her missing. This is posted here with his consent.

 

Please ,if you have photos of that day from the area or have seen anything, contact the local police (number, see post above).

Mahalo!

 

No news to report. Kimberly vanished sometime during the late afternoon or evening of Thursday, August 21. Her husband says Kim was home around 5pm. He later went downstairs to a board meeting. When he returned, around 8pm, Kimberly was gone. The door to the apartment was unlocked.

 

Everything a woman would take with her (purse, I.D., keys, cell phone, money, credit cards) was still in the apartment. The only thing he believed she had taken was her swim goggles. Their apartment is right on the ocean, and she often went swimming.(He later said he was mistaken, and has since found the goggles in their apartment).

 

Husband says Kim never returned home that night. The next morning, he just went to his office. He says he didn't notice if her vehicle was still parked at their apartment, and wasn't concerned she had failed to return home.

 

When I learned Kim was missing-- and swim goggles were the only item she appeared to have with her -- I asked husband if he had launched a search.

 

He responded, "I wouldn't know what to do with her if I found her." I asked him to check if her vehicle was still parked at their apartment. He refused, and chastised me for interrupting his business meeting by inquiring about his missing wife. I immediately called the police and reported Kimberly missing.

 

I spoke to Husband again on Saturday night, Aug. 23 (two nights after Kim vanished). He told me there are two locked gates between the apartment and the water. A key is required to access those gates. Husband was adamant that both keys to the gates (his and her's) were still in their apartment Saturday night. He insisted Kimberly could not have reached the ocean, and must have left the apartment via the street.

 

The next morning (Sunday), Husband said her key to those gates was not in the apartment after all. Later Sunday, he reportedly discovered Kimberly's key by the water. Why no one saw the key there the previous two days, or why he insisted both keys were still in the apartment Saturday night, has not been explained to me. Maybe that was an innocent mistake. Maybe it wasn't. Maybe she had an accident while swimming. Maybe she didn't. Her friends and family are left wondering what happened. That no body has been recovered, after six weeks, merely adds to the mystery.

 

No one believes Kim ran away. Identification is required to board a plane or ferry or register at a hotel. All her I.D. was still in the apartment. Her vehicle was there. She could not walk far, and there is no evidence anyone drove her. Nor would Kimberly disappear and leave her daughter. She's too responsible a mother.

 

Clearly, something very bad happened to Kimberly in the late afternoon or evening of August 21. The question is what happened and why. We won't find Kimberly (or the answer to this puzzle) by searching shopping malls, despite the PR efforts

a certain person has been conducting to improve his image.

 

Rather, we need witnesses to tell the police anything heard or observed around the day Kimberly disappeared (or the preceding weeks and months, or even afterwards) that may shed light on this mystery.

 

In addition, if anyone was near the water at Diamond Head Ambassador (DHA) apartments in the days right after Kimberly vanished (between late afternoon on Thursday, Aug. 21 through Sunday, Aug. 24) tell the police if you saw--or did not see--a key near the water or gate closest to the ocean, when, and where.

 

Any photographs taken on those days, showing the water side of DHA (and perhaps the presence or absence of a key), are also very helpful.(That includes any pictures taken by visitors).

 

Let me emphasize: Nothing I have said in this post should be construed as accusing anyone of wrongdoing. At this point, it is a missing persons investigation, nothing more. Still, after six weeks, the family has more questions than answers. The more people can tell us (and the police) about the situation, the better the chances of our eventually getting some satisfactory answers.

 

Thank you all for your assistance, and your love for Kimberly.

The friend who wrote the above summary also wanted to add the following:

 

P.S. In fairness to Husband, he has offered an explanation for why he wasn't too concerned when Kimberly failed to come home that night, and he reportedly has cooperated with the police investigation.
