Family members say a memorial service has been planned for a Lincoln native who went missing in Hawaii.

Clare Maney, a UNL graduate, has been missing from her home in Hawaii since Monday afternoon. Crews suspended their search and Maney is presumed dead, according to family members.

“As long as I’ve known her, shes very passionate person and very good at connecting with people and she always pours everything she has into her people and her interests,” said Anne Rezac, Maney’s cousin.

Rezac describes Clare as smart and adventurous. Growing up together just north of Lincoln, Anne says she’s practically another sister to her.

“She and I are very, very close.”

Rezac says Clare moved to Hawaii last summer to take on new opportunities after working with the UNL Outdoor Adventure Center.

Anne says the two stayed very connected, talking weekly. The last time being Monday morning.

“She was having some struggles in Hawaii and she was thinking about moving back to the mainland, and she was. She planned a whole road trip for the summer,” Rezac says.

Rezac and another close friend of Clare’s decided to fly down this week to be there to support her. But when they called Monday evening, they didn’t get a response.

“We decided to send local authorities to her house for a wellness check because we sort of knew something was not right and there started the entire search and our instinct was correct.”

Rezac said she had planned to fly to Hawaii this weekend to help with the search.
