On Sunday, Nov. 15, 2015 at around 3:03 p.m., a family member reported that Ignacio Rivera, 89, of Kahului, did not return home after going to church. After church, he walked to a friend’s house along Makali’i Street in Kahului. Rivera was last seen walking away from the residence towards the Kuihelani Highway by the friend.
