Media Release (update)

Big Island police are asking for the public’s help in locating a missing 23-year-old man who disappeared last year while visiting from the mainland.

Sean Ryan of California was last seen at a friend’s home in the Fern Acres subdivision in upper Puna on August 12, 2007. At the time of his disappearance, he may have been wearing white shorts or blue flannel pajama bottoms and likely did not have on a shirt. Ryan suffers from a medical condition for which he should be taking medication.

Police want Ryan to know that he is not being sought for any criminal matter in Hawaii or elsewhere. Family members are visiting the island to try to establish that he is safe but have no intention of removing him from Hawaii.

Ryan is described as 5-foot-10, 160 pounds with a slim build and short blond hair that is curly on top. When last seen, he was not wearing the glasses depicted in the photograph provided. 

Police ask anyone with information on his whereabouts to call the Police Department’s non-emergency number at 935-3311. Tipsters who prefer to remain anonymous may call Crime Stoppers at 961-8300 in Hilo or 329-8181 in Kona. All Crime Stoppers information is kept confidential.
