Details of Disappearance
Mr. Cortez was last seen at about 1:00 am at the Lihue Mill sugar cane processing plant. He worked nights oiling and maintaining plantation equipment. Employees who searched the plant area found his midnight snack, coffee mug, keys and street clothes in the break room and his car in the employee parking area. A mill worker found a rubber boot and torn t-shirt caught in equipment inside the factory. Officials have said they don't believe anyone could fall into the machinery by accident because of the way it is designed. There has been no activity on his social security number.
