Moreira Monsalve


A big search effort to find 46-year-old Moreira Monsalve from Maui is planned for Saturday.  It will be six days since her disappearance and her family is growing more concerned.

They say she was last seen at her ex-boyfriend's house on Sunday night.

Monsalve's daughter is asking anyone interested in helping with the search to meet at the Steel Horse Saloon in Wailuku at 6:30 p.m. Friday.

That's where they will determine where to focus the search efforts on Saturday.

Monsalve is a mother of three and as the days go by her family loses hope they'll find her alive.

"They siad as of now, based on her age, height and weight, this could be more of a recovery mission instead of actually finding her, so it's been hard," said Monsalve's daughter Alexis Felicilda.

Her family started a Facebook page called Mowatch missing person Moreira Monsalve.  Here, they are posting information and updates about the search.
