Officers searching for another missing teen

Police are seeking information on the whereabouts of Gienell Tolentino, 16, who was last seen Sept. 8

Officials with the Kaua’i Police Department are once again asking for the public’s assistance in trying to locate another missing Kaua’i teenage girl.

According to police, 16-year-old Gienell Tolentino was last seen at about 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 8, when she was dropped off at Kaua’i High School.

Tolentino reportedly did not attend school that day, and is believed to have left the campus shortly after her arrival, police sources said.

She is 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighs 115 pounds, and has brown eyes and black, shoulder-length hair. She is of Filipino descent.

Anyone with information on Tolentino is urged to call KPD dispatch line, 241-1711; KPD’s Investigative Services Bureau, 241-1696; or Crime Stoppers, 241-1887.

Calls to Crime Stoppers may be confidential, and those providing information that leads to Tolentino’s safe return may be eligible for cash rewards.

Last week, KPD officers put out a public plea for assistance in locating two other Kaua’i young females, Jolene Corr, 17, missing since March 23, and Shawlyn Texeira, 17.

Texeira turned herself in to authorities, a police source said.

Corr was last seen running away from the old Lihu’e courthouse after a scheduled Family Court appearance.

Corr is 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighs 150 pounds, has brown hair and brown eyes, and a scar above her left eye. She is of Hawaiian descent.
