He is also wanted for questioning in another investigation. He is described as 6-feet tall, 250 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.

In this latest edition of “Hawaiʻi Island’s Most Wanted,” Officer Bryan Tina also asks for help in locating 33-year-old Chanel Mariani of Hilo, who is wanted for violating probation and for violating release on bail. She also wanted for questioning in an unrelated case. She is described as 5-foot-6, 142 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair. She may be in Puna.
