KHON2 –  spoke with Eller’s friend Sarah Haynes, who aided in leading search efforts.

“It’s like a relief we were on our last few days of doing this physical search, and we found her, and she can talk, and she is bawling and is talking to her father on the phone and super relieved,” she said. What we know is they’re airlifting her out of there and I’m going out there to meet the family. Amanda is alive and this community brought her home.”

MPD said she went to the post office before heading to the Makawao Forest Reserve. 

Friends and family believed she went into the forest and that’s where they have been searching for her since she was reported missing on May 9.
