Hawaii Island police have identified the body of a woman found Monday, June 1, in Umauma Stream.

She was identified through fingerprints as Bobbie “Jackie” Carnathan, 62, of Kailua-Kona.

Carnathan was reported missing Saturday, May 30, according to police.

Officials said an autopsy conducted Wednesday, June 3, determined that she died from traumatic injuries consistent with a fall from a height.

Police do not suspect foul play.

Detectives from the Area I Criminal Investigations Section continue to investigate this incident, which is classified as a coroner’s inquest.

They ask witnesses who may have seen Carnathan on a “Hele On” bus or who had any contact with her at the World Botanical Gardens and Waterfalls park in Hakalau to contact Detective Dean Uyetake by phone at 961-2379 or via email.
