Police seek help locating teen

Police are seeking information on the whereabouts of 17-year-old Tyler “Kaimana” Prem.

He was last seen at 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, when he was dropped off at Kukui Grove Center. He didn’t turn up at 4 p.m. when he was supposed to be picked up and a search of the mall turned up no trace of the teen.

A missing persons report was filed by his family and a bulletin was issued. He is currently classified as a runaway.

Prem is about 5 feet, 9-inches tall and weighs approximately 200 pounds. He may be in the company of his girlfriend, Harley Kuapahi, who is 5 feet, 5-inches tall and weighs about 145 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call Kaua‘i Police Department dispatch at 241-1711 or Prem’s mother, Shanlynn Hammond, at 346-4057.
