The still shots pictured here are from surveillance video confirm Eller stopped by Ha'iku Post Office and Market just before 11 a.m. Wednesday.

Eller is seen wearing active clothing and buying an energy bar and bottled water. 

According to loved ones, that is her typical behavior before a hike. Her white SUV was found at the foot of Kahakapao Trail Thursday. 

Since that time, Maui Police and volunteers have scoured Makawao Forest and they do not suspect foul play at this time. 

Police tell KITV4 that there are no suspects. Eller's boyfriend reported her missing Thursday morning. 

Her family says he passed a polygraph test and want to refute public ridicule indicating that he was involved. 

"I never had any doubt. He loves my daughter and I know that," Eller's mother said. 

When asked what he has to say to people who suspect he had something to do with Eller's disappearance, he answers:

"In no way could I ever imagine harming her in any single way I've been out here every single day looking for her it's been tearing my life apart, it's a waste of energy really to point fingers at me," Eller's boyfriend said. "Instead of just taking actual steps to find her."

Eller's family continues to ask for the public's help searching. They're offering a $10,000 reward to anyone with details that lead to her return. 


The search for 36-year-old Amanda Eller has opened back up Wednesday, seven days after she was initially reported missing on Maui.

Eller's family told KITV4 that her boyfriend passed a polygraph test. He was never listed as a person of interest in Eller's disappearance.

She was last seen on Wednesday, May 8. Police found her SUV in a parking lot near the Makawao Forest the next day. New surveillance photos show Eller stopped by the Haiku Post Office and market in the hours before she went missing.

Maui Mayor Michael Victorino expressed concern today for the missing woman saying, “It’s hard to imagine the pain of family and friends of missing hiker Amanda Eller. My hope and prayer is that she is located soon and is safe and sound. Until then, Maui police and firefighters are working diligently to follow up on any new information.”

The Maui Police Department says they have received numerous tips and will continue to follow any leads.

"Officers attached to our Special Response Team have put in many miles searching the denser sections of the forest reserve. We are grateful for the many tips and bits of information we received from the general public,” said Assistant Chief of Police Victor Ramos, Investigative Services Bureau.

MPD says they are using heat sensors in the forest. Police dogs on O'ahu were also flown up to assist.
