Crews continue search for missing swimmer off Waipio Valley

By Hawaii 24/7 Staff

Rescue crews continued their search for 62-year-old Kevin Devlin, also known as Shawn Devlin, of Honokaa who was last seen swimming at 6:30 p.m. Monday (May 13) in Waipio Valley Bay.

Wednesday (May 15) the fire department’s Chopper One conducted an aerial search up to one mile off-shore from Laupahoehoe Nui to Hapuu Bay. SCUBA divers also conducted searches between Waialeale and Waimanu Bay. Ground crews searched the shoreline areas of Waipio Valley without finding Devlin.

The U.S. Coast Guard has joined the search for Devlin. The search was halted due to darkness Wednesday and will resume at daybreak Thursday (May 16).

Devlin is described as Caucasian, 5-foot-10, 160 pounds with short, thin white hair.

Police ask that anyone with information on his whereabouts call Officer Dion Santiago at 775-7533 or the Police Department’s non-emergency line at 935-3311.
