  • Details of Disappearance
    Laura went missing from the Pauwela Lighthouse area of Ha'iku, Maui on Sunday night, February 21, 2010. Laura was last known to be camping for the night in the area. Laura's last communication was a text message Sunday evening indicating that she was "camped down the way from birthing pools and meeting all the locals." She did not return texts after that time. Her friend texted back immediately but did not get a response, which was unusual for Laura.

    A science teacher with a master's degree in wildlife biology, Laura is an experienced backcountry backpacker and an avid surfer in excellent health and physical condition.

    Laura's van was found on Monday near a homeless camp by friends who went looking for her when she did not show up for a tutoring job. Part of her cell phone have been found.
