The family posted the following statement online:
“It is with great sadness that we can confirm that the Scott family has been informed by Maui Police that investigation into Charli’s disappearance has been reclassified as a homicide investigation. Without disclosing details of the ongoing investigation, we want to dispel rumors that Charli’s body has been recovered. Sadly, this is untrue. That said, we feel strongly that evidence of this crime should be presented in court and not via rumors and shoddy news reporting. We would like to thank the Maui Police for their thorough work thus far and encourage the public to cooperate with them in their search to bring Charli and her unborn son’s killer to justice. Thank you and mahalo for your thoughts and prayers.”
According to family’s spokesperson, volunteers will continue to search for Scott.
