Police are requesting the public’s help in locating a 7-month-old infant and her 34-year-old father from Pahoa.

On Monday at about 7:09 p.m., police received a report from a 37-year-old Pahoa woman that her estranged husband had removed their infant daughter from the home of a relative, claiming that he was heading to Kona. He has not been seen since. The infant’s mother is concerned for the safety and well-being of her infant.
