While Mina’s family is now working with authorities in Hawaii to search for the missing man, press releases stated that a search on Wednesday was called off due to darkness. The area where Mina went missing is believed to be “treacherous and dangerous,” police said.

Meanwhile, Thursday, May 23 marks the 15th day of Eller’s search. As reported, Eller’s boyfriend, Ben Konkol, submitted to a polygraph test. He is not a suspect.


While Eller’s car was found at a parking lot in a Maui reserve where she often goes running, the yoga teacher was spotted on surveillance cameras entering a grocery store before she went missing.

A Facebook page has been set up for Eller. On Thursday, May 23, search organizers begged citizens in the community to save surveillance footage in case Eller appears in any footage.
