Home » Khiara Henry Mysteriously Vanished While On Vacation In 2019
A young woman disappeared from Hawaii while on vacation and her loved ones are hoping that someone can give them answers. Khiara Henry, 23, was last seen in Maui on July 21, 2019, after traveling to Hawaii from San Diego, Calif. She was reportedly staying at a hotel in Kihei and at 2:00 p.m.the day she disappeared, she rented a vehicle for one evening. She planned to visit Waiʻānapanapa State Park in Hana, but what happened to Khiara remains a mystery.
Two days later, the rental car was located at the park in a gravel parking lot. It had been abandoned and many of Khiara’s personal belongings were still inside including her luggage, credit card, and identification. However, other items like the car key, her cell phone, and a small backpack she carried with her haven’t been found. When the mileage on the rental vehicle was inspected, authorities concluded that it showed Khiara Henry drove from picking up the vehicle directly to the park. She was scheduled to fly back home on July 29, 2019, but she didn’t make her flight and remains missing.
Some have suggested that Khiara left of her own volition, but her family refutes those claims because she was so close to her loved ones. According to reports, Khiara’s father described her as an adventurous person who enjoyed the outdoors, especially hiking.
At the time of her disappearance, Khiara Henry stood 5 feet 2 inches to 5 feet 3 inches tall and was 105 to 110 pounds. She has brown hair, brown eyes, and is vegan. Khiara’s background is reported as “American Indian / Alaska Native, Black / African American.” She is enrolled with the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation. Her middle name is “Lavinia.”
