Missing 11-year-old girl found safe in Palolo Valley

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewSNow) - An 11-year-old girl who had been missing since Friday morning was found on Sunday evening.

According to Honolulu Police and CrimeStoppers, Makanani Tavai-Bright was located at 6:45 p.m. in Palolo Valley. Investigators said the girl was spotted with a friend, and that friend's parents called police.

In a statement, CrimeStoppers and HPD also thanked "the public for their assistance in locating" the girl, who would be reunited with her family.

Tavai-Bright is home schooled. Some people reported seeing her Saturday near the International Marketplace in Waikiki. 

Makanani Tavai-Bright's parents said that this started as a runaway case and that their child has left home once before, but only for a few hours.

The 11 year old may have been upset with someone in their house and ran out around 6 a.m. Friday.

Third UH football player arrested for DUI since March

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- For the third time in four months, a University of Hawaii football player has been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Warrior punter Alex Dunnachie, 21, was arrested at the corner of Piikoi and South King streets at approximately 2:40 a.m. Saturday morning. The senior from Australia posted $500 dollars bail and was released a few hours later.

UH Athletics Director Jim Donovan says both he and Coach Norm Chow were disappointed in the arrest.

"I can certainly tell you that Coach Chow is not happy and is frustrated, and that's going to be expressed to the whole team, as it probably was even after the first incident," Donovan said. "This is not typical of the 450-500 athletes that we do have, but sometimes these young people make mistakes, and they have to own up to those mistakes and we certainly hope learn from them."

Save the Date! Thursday, July 12 from 3:30 to 4:30 pm in the Historical Gallery Theatre at the Japanese Culutural Center of Hawai'i.

Kitano, a third-generation Japanese American, writes with an eerie, clarified composure of her family's struggles - immigration, culture shock, internment - and of her own private struggle to understand her family and herself. Her confident, beautifully crafted poems are suggestive of a mature poet at the top of her form.
