The rescue team that found yoga teacher Amanda Eller have started a new hunt for yet another missing hiker.
Javier Cantellops and Chris Berquist — — are leading a new search for Noah “Kekai” Mina, who went missing on May 20.
The 35-year-old went for a hike in the Kapilau Ridge in Wailuku in hopes of “seeking clarity,” his father, Vincent Mina,
“We look for him to return to us and share this sojourn into the depths of his beautiful soul and spirit,” his dad said.
Cantellops said his team met with the missing man’s family in the middle of celebrating Eller’s safe return.
“Believe me when I say our team would love to just sleep in and rest … but there will be time for that when his family can rest,” Cantellops “We will not rest until Noah is found one way or another.”

“The Eller Search ended incredibly and we are still on an incredible high form it [sic],” he wrote. “Maui let’s keep the momentum going the motivation going and the love and support going. Let’s give this family the same Aloha the same support we gave Amanda.”
He added, “The eternal hyperactive optimist in me never gives up, nor should you.”
