Search continues for missing Maui pregnant woman

The search resumed for Carly Scott Thursday morning in Huelo.

The family of a missing pregnant woman on Maui say a car found at a popular surf spot may belong to her.

The family of 27-year-old Carly Scott says friends found that vehicle at about 6 p.m. Wednesday in Haiku.

Scott’s stepfather says the vehicle was found in pineapple fields off Peahi Road, which leads to the popular surf spot known as “Jaws.”

They say more needs to be done before they can confirm the vehicle belongs to Scott.

“There’s a couple of torched cars. One of them is hers, on its side. At this point, we believe it’s hers, actually because the license plate matches the APB and it’s the numbers that’s on my daughter’s license plate,” said John Pipken, Scott’s stepfather.

Maui police have yet to complete the investigation.

The family says police will need to match the vehicle identification numbers before they can confirm it belongs to Scott.

Scott, who also goes by the nickname “Charli,” is five months pregnant.

She was last seen leaving her home in Makawao Sunday night to help her friend in Hana.

The dog Scott took with her to Hana was found alive and well Monday morning in Nahiku.

Scott is 5’10” and 160 pounds.

Her friends and family resumed the search at about 8 a.m. Thursday in Huelo.
