  1. The link for the article I previously quoted saying she was “found … unharmed” back in April. Obviously false, or “disappearing” [wandering off/getting lost/missing] has now become “normal” behavior for her.

    Again, just saying.

  2. OKAY. Granted. She’s “not … on meds.” She’s still a wacko.

    So, let me get this straight:

    [article: February 12, 2012]

    “Big Island police are searching for a 31-year-old Pahoa woman who was reported as missing since Jan. 24.”

    So, she was missing *at least* once, beginning as far back as “January 24,” correct? Or am I missing something?

    Then, according to another, similar article [January 31, 2012]:

    “Kimberly was sighted in Kohala on Monday (January 30) driving a white older-model Toyota 4Runner …”

    OK. Got that? She was seen, alive and well, six days later.

    So [and this isn’t rocket science]: she does *not* want to be … “found.”

    Hello? Get it? She’s either

    a) a bit loosely wrapped (like most of these “dings” that get loose, lost or off their meds); or,

    b) she is preferring to *not* be “located.

    What’s so hard to understand about that? Hello? She was seen driving her freaking vehicle—probably on her way to get a latté or something at Starbucks or to the beach.

    Get over it.

    I stand by what I originally posted because it’s obviously true.

    OH, but wait! One more thing. Another article, originally posted on March 30, 2012 … and subsequently updated:

    “UPDATED (4/5/2012 at 8:30 AM)

    Big Island police have located 31-year-old Kimberly Horoschak of Pāhoa, who was reported as missing.

    She was found unharmed Wednesday in Kona.”

    Are you listening? Was she still driving her vehicle? Coherent? Where she get gas money? Does she carry around wads of cash? Use plastic? I bet there is a “paper’digital” trail a “mile” wide, if anybody who has the authority cared to investigate.

    So, please don’t get all riled up and butt-hurt over my comments, if the they seem harsh, cavalier, or insensitive. Because, really, you have no phucking clue. I’ve been taking this stuff seriously for a long time. I used to work in a prison (Walla Walla / WSP). I have kids. So, don’t even “go there,” pointing fingers and me and accusing me of *not* caring.

    It’s precisely *because* I take this “missing persons” stuff seriously that I get irritated as hell when some nutjob gets off their meds, stresses out and runs away—like this chick obviously did, dealing with “2 jobs” and “school” and being overwhelmed with “property” and keeping her apartment.

    She had a break down. Pure and simple. No disgrace. It happens.

    Unstable = Needs Meds/Mental Health evaluation.

    I rest my case.

    I used to save all these photos and use them as a “screen saver” on my laptop. When I’d step away from or let my computer “idle” for a while, maybe going to get a refill while at Starbucks or something, their faces would march across the screen. Just a reminder.

    Same thing with the bad boys/girls. The “wanted” folks. I like the idea of getting involved and getting criminals off the streets.

    But, no, this is not something that I feel is productive, crying “wolf, WOLF! WOLF!”

    Pretty soon, nobody is listening.

    So then, in many (not all, of course) of these cases, it’s either whackos “off” their meds or (as in this case) somebody who should *get* some meds.

    Just saying. Sorry if the truth offends anybody.

    As for me? I think I’m through trying to get involved or trying to help out with “missing” people anymore. Over and over, it’s the same thing—somebody doing what they normally do, or (in this case) somebody doing something that is “not normal” for them to do, but they are just fine, either way.

    Over and over …. “found, unharmed in [Kona/Hamakua/Hilo/Puna]”

    No details. No analysis. No followup. No explanation.

    Basically, “move along, now, nothing to see here.”


    When these kooks run out of money or their “plastic” stops working, they’ll seek help. Never fails. The vacation always ends.

    Unless it’s a lifestyle they want or they really are crazy. In which case, most of them are probably doing just as well (if not better) as most of us who never go “missing.”

    No, really. Certainly no more miserable. In many cases, happier.

    Nutjobs, or not.

  3. Hello? She was found, already. Another whacko off their meds, found wondering around, no doubt, looking as lost as they really are. Geesh.


    • Brian, this is the Police Report that I just received this evening. If you have knowledge of where she’s at… I suggest you call the number listed.

      Hopefully, if she is not missing… the police will send out a correction on tonight’s memo.

    • Indeed she is not a wacko on meds. In fact if you must know she was full time student school 2 jobs has land on the island and an apartment… she’s been living there for 10 years. I have known her for 18 years. This is not normal behavior for her to disappear. She was not intoe drinking or drugs previously. She was actually in a car accident back in January. Being that I live in Pennsylvania, the only thing I can do is reach out to the public not to ignore that

      • I also know her personally and she is not on meds…drugs or drinking, but she certainly is a wacko. Needs therapy and I hope she gets some for her sake (and ours).

        • Julian, I am Kimberly “Satya” Horoschak’s mom and I am desperate for information about her well-being. You say you know her personally and that she is a wacko. What do mean by this? Could you please share with me what you know?

          I know that the missing, found, missing seems strange, but to anyone who knows and loves her, what is strange is her behavior and recent choices. She is missing to her family and friends. She has not been heard from for months, nor has anyone seen her recently. From one day to the next, she just disappeared from my life. In all the years she has lived on the Island, I have never not had contact with her.

          I don’t know whether you have children or a good relationship with your family and friends and can relate, but not knowing where my daughter Kimberly is and if she is well and safe, is one of the hardest things I have ever had to cope with. Please, if you know anything at all, respond to this post. Thank you.

        • There is an ongoing police investigation related to this person and if there is information that you can contribute I suggest you contact the police in this post. How well do you know satya, and if i can ask who are you? I dont remember the name julian as being a friend of hers.

          • And what makes you so certain that Kimberly [aka “Satya”] was totally disclosive—tellIng you every detail of her life?

            Sounds like even mom doesn’t really know who Kimberly/Satya/Whoever is. Again, just saying.

            Another clue.

            And, do you have any idea how many screwed up young white kids come over here to Hawaii with no foundation—spiritually, emotionally and psychologically?

            They “run” (by the hundreds, I’m sure; I’ve met dozens) to Hawaii. Not necessarily to go to school and be “successful” so much as to “get away,” “be happy,” or “find,” themselves.

            Looking at the history, and knowing a thing or two about human nature, KIMBERLY is either relatively OK and *not* wanting contact with mom (et al), or NOT OK, and we should all be doing whatever we can to find SATYA.

            • Mr. Ansorge- I do not know who you are and why you are choosing to comment on this issue, but I can say for sure, you have way too much time on your hands and have absolutely no clue who my daughter is and the circumstances surrounding the events in her and my life that have transpired since last February. Just because there is physical distance between people, does not discount the ability to have a close and meaningful relationship. I had a close and meaningful relationship with my daughter until a controlling older man came into her life and she totally lost sight of her goals, dreams and self. I know this… what do you know other than speculation?

              I assume you are not a parent and never experienced the love and bond some people are able to foster with their adult children. I had that with both my daughters. And now, for no understandable and rational reason, other than the belief that she is under the influence of a man I can only describe as evil, I don’t have that with Kimberly.

              You will never understand, because you have no clue. Unless you can show some empathy for what I, my family and Kimberly’s friends are going through, why don’t you keep your comments to yourself or use your energy to do something positive for others who are in similar situations, desperately looking for confirmation that their loved ones are safe and well.

              Karen- Kimberly Satya Horoschak’s mom

      • So, Christie, you really have no idea about who Kimberly *really* is. You say you’ve known her for “18” years, but then confess that the last “10” years of that tIme she’s been living *away* … from you … far away … in Hawaii.
