…Souther said no foul play is suspected “at this time” but said that Adams apparently doesn’t have a cell phone and “there’s no way to contact him.
“We do have people who come here to Hawaii that just backpack around and sometimes it takes awhile to track them down,” Souther said.
Kawaihae, the community where Adams was last seen, is near the northwestern corner of the island of Hawaii. Souther described it as a harbor area that is not heavily populated.
“We’re just following up leads as far as the last places he was know to be, using his bank cards and what not,” Souther said.
