Search for Koloa woman continues

LIHU‘E — The search continues for a Koloa woman last seen Thursday morning.

Koloa resident Jodielynn Taylor, 56, was last seen leaving the Big Save store in Koloa the morning of Oct. 7, the Kaua‘i Police Department reported on Tuesday while sharing surveillance-camera footage.

She was reported missing at around 6 a.m. on Saturday. It was previously reported that Taylor was last seen at her home on Oct. 6.

Taylor is 5 feet, 4 inches tall and approximately 130 pounds. Taylor is of Hawaiian and Caucasian descent, and has blue eyes and brown hair often worn in a ponytail. She also has two tattoos: one depicting a flower on her abdomen, and one on her lower back that reads “Ku‘uipo.” Her vehicle is a gold, four-door Honda sedan.

It is believed that Taylor, who is known to fish as Shipwreck Beach and the Po‘ipu coast, may have had her fishing poles with her when she disappeared. She is also known to frequent Koloa, Lihu‘e, Waimea and Koke‘e State Park.

As of Tuesday, KPD reported that there had been no new developments in the search.

Anyone with information on Taylor’s whereabouts is asked to contact KPD dispatch at 808-241-1711 or detective Hanson Hsu at 808-241-1641. Tips can also be left at the Kaua‘i Crime Stoppers website at
