FBI Helping Collect DNA to Locate and Identify Missing Persons in Lahaina

News Release from FBI, Aug 17, 2023

The FBI’s Honolulu Division is assisting the Maui Police Department with their efforts to locate and identify those who are missing or may be victims of the wildfires in Lahaina, Hawaii, by helping collect DNA samples from family members.

The FBI, MPD, and Maui Emergency Management Agency are asking all immediate family members—parents, siblings, and children—of those who are still missing to provide DNA samples to assist in this effort.

Immediate family on the Island of Maui:

Immediate family members located on the Island of Maui are asked to go to the Hyatt Regency Kaanapali between 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. beginning Friday, August 18, to provide your DNA samples.

Immediate family on neighbor islands or the mainland:

Immediate family members located on neighbor islands or the mainland are asked to call the FBI at (808) 566-4300, or to contact us via email at HN-COMMAND-POST@ic.fbi.gov and provide your contact information. The FBI will provide further instructions on how you can provide your DNA samples.

The FBI is committed to helping our communities during times of crisis, including natural disasters. The Maui Police Department requested assistance from the FBI in these DNA collection efforts. The FBI is collecting the DNA for the sole purpose of helping identify those reported missing and will provide the samples to the laboratory assisting the police department. No DNA will be retained by the FBI.
