TWO MONTHS: UNL student still missing in Hawaii
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Wednesday marks exactly two months since 23-year-old Samuel Martinez was last seen in Hawaii.
The UNL student planned to spend nearly two weeks hiking and camping on the island of Kauai for a late spring break trip. He arrived on the island by himself on May 12th. His family filed a missing person’s report with Lincoln Police after he missed his flight home on May 25th.
Local authorities scoured the island for weeks after he was reported missing, unfortunately with no sign of Martinez. The search was eventually put on hold late last month until new leads were brought to the table.
