KAILUA-KONA — Police are seeking the public’s help in locating two sisters who were reported missing five days ago.
Kerryann Duarte, 14, and her 12-year-old sister Allanie were last seen Friday in the Kailua-Kona/Kealakehe area. According to Hawaii Police, the sisters live in separate locations. On Friday, they were both “dropped off to attend school by different individuals who care for them,” Maj. Robert Wagner said Wednesday.
When afternoon pickup time came around, Wagner said the girls were nowhere to be found.
After searching for the sisters for a few days, police put out a media release asking for the public’s assistance.
West Hawaii Today reached out to Hawaii State Department of Education.
“Unfortunately, due to student privacy laws, I’m unable to share information about this situation,” DOE spokeswoman Lindsay Chambers wrote. “The safety and well-being of our students is a priority and in cases where we feel the need arises to alert the school community about stranger danger incidents and/or attempted abductions our schools will send out a parent letter.”
Chambers didn’t confirm whether or not such a letter had been sent to parents.
Kerryann was last seen wearing a black and white checkered long-sleeved flannel shirt, blue jeans, and black socks with black “Roxy” slippers.
She is described as part-Hawaiian, 5-feet-3-inches, 120 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.
Allanie was last seen wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and slippers.
She is described as part-Hawaiian, 5-feet-2-inches, 100 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. She also has a 5-inch scar on her right forearm.
Police ask that anyone who know the sisters’ whereabouts call their non-emergency number at 935-3311.
