Responding to an 8:40 a.m. call, police learned that the girl had arrived at Kapiolani Elementary School in Hilo around 8 a.m. and later was missing from the school.

Police searched for the girl with the help of the Juvenile Aid Section’s search-and-rescue dog, along with assistance from the Hawaii County Fire Department, the county helicopter and volunteers.
