Police Suspend Search for Hiker in Hawaii; Family Suspects 'Foul Play'
Tuesday, March 02, 2010
By Joshua Rhett Miller

Two digital-age forms of communication are the focus of a police investigation into the mysterious disappearance of a 43-year-old hiker in Hawaii who relatives believe was the victim of foul play.

Maui police say the active search for 43-year-old Laura Vogel has been suspended until new evidence is found, but relatives believe "something went desperately wrong."

Vogel, a freelance tutor and avid camper, was last heard from on Feb. 21 when she sent a text message to a friend indicating she was "meeting all the locals" in an area known as the birthing pools in Haiku, in Maui County.
