Facebook Some of the Maui missing people on the list.

The official Maui missing person list has been released by County of Maui officials. You can see the full list of 383 names later in this article, in addition to photos and bio information for some people when it’s available. However, some of them have been found.

The missing include an elderly woman who lived in a senior citizens’ complex; a young wife whose husband is desperately searching for her, her parents and other extended relatives; an EMT whose family believes he may have been helping others; and a Japanese man who worked in a Lahaina hotel. Some were disabled or wheelchair bound. Read some of their stories and see photos later in this story.

At least 115 people are confirmed dead in the wildfire, according to NBC News.

“County of Maui releases validated list of names of individuals who remain unaccounted for following Lahaina wildfire disaster,” the Maui County, Hawaii, website says. The Maui missing person list of names was released on August 24, 2023.

“The names on the list were compiled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI),” the website says. “The Maui Police Department needs the public’s help in providing information on anyone who is reported unaccounted for and whose name is on this list, but know the person can be accounted for.”

Maui County noted: “If you recognize a name on the list and know the person to be safe, or if you have additional information about the person that may help locate them, please contact the FBI at (808) 566-4300 or as soon as possible.”

“We’re releasing this list of names today because we know that it will help with the investigation,” said Police Chief John Pelletier in the news release. “We also know that once those names come out, it can and will cause pain for folks whose loved ones are listed. This is not an easy thing to do, but we want to make sure that we are doing everything we can to make this investigation as complete and thorough as possible.”

A woman wrote on Facebook of the list, “Please check these names some of them are safe! Thankfully!!! Please help us get names off the lists and let your friends and family know your ok!! 😘💪🏽 Some people don’t realize they are on here!!” It’s not clear whom she means, but it should be noted that the people on the list are not confirmed dead and may simply be out of contact with loved ones.

There is also a crowd-sourced Excel sheet tracking the missing. It lists some people as “found” who are on the government’s list.
