HONOLULU (KHON2) — The search for a missing snorkeler on Maui entered its second day on Friday after a reported shark attack off of Keawakapu Beach.

Coast Guard officials said helicopters, jet skis and a C-130 plane were just some of the vehicles involved in the search for the 60-year-old missing snorkeler.

The woman was reportedly swimming with her husband around 1 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 8.

“And he encountered the shark and was able to fight it off and he quickly swam back to shore and when he got back to shore he noticed his wife was not beside him, and didn’t make it back on shore and that’s when he made the report to the authorities and that’s what kicked off the search,” said Coast Guard public affairs specialist Ryan Fisher.

The Department of Land and Natural Resources said State and County efforts were called off around noon on Friday, KHON2 is waiting for clarification on why.

The Coast Guard said their plan was still to search through Friday night.

“The plan is to continue searching throughout the day and into the night. But we’ll have to keep an eye out on the weather conditions to make sure that our crews and everybody involved are also safe,” Fisher said.

“They’re doing everything they can and they’re throwing all the assets that we have available to the case to bring her home.”

The DLNR said what was believed to be a 10- to 12-foot tiger shark was spotted in the area. Coast Guard officials said personal items were recovered.

“I couldn’t walk by one person this morning that I see every morning and that’s all everybody’s talking about,” Alisha Jermulowske said. “They’re in our thoughts and prayers, I couldn’t imagine what that man, you know, is going through, that is just, it’s so heartbreaking.”

Jermulowske had a message for the Coast Guard and anyone who was still searching on Friday night.

“Well, first of all, I wanna thank them. They seem to be working overtime and I know it’s top priority,” she said. “And I hope that they find what they’re looking for, and that everybody can come to peace with what’s going on, what’s happened.”

Warning signs were posted in the area until 2 p.m. on Friday, according to DLNR officials.
