Big Island Police Identify Body as Woman Reported Missing

Hawaiʻi Island police have identified the body of the woman found Monday (June 1) in Umauma Stream.

She was identified through fingerprints Tuesday (June 2) as 62-year-old Bobbie Jackie Carnathan of Kailua-Kona, who was reported missing Saturday (May 30).

An autopsy conducted Wednesday (June 3) determined that she died from traumatic injuries consistent with a fall from a height. Police do not suspect foul play.

Detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section continue to investigate this incident, which is classified as a coroner’s inquest. They ask witnesses who may have seen Carnathan on a “Hele On” bus or who had any contact with her at the World Botanical Gardens and Waterfalls park in Hakalau to contact Detective Dean Uyetake at 961-2379 or dean.uyetake@hawaiicounty.gov.
