The Disappearance of Marianne Waters

Source: Hawaii News Now

Marianne Waters has been missing since August 2008. The then-22-year-old was last seen in the Waikiki area of Honolulu, Hawaii. Marianne was due to travel to Oregon to visit her mother on August 23rd, 2008, but she never arrived. She has never been seen or heard from again.

Marianne was living in Hawaii at the time of her disappearance. Her family lived in Oregon and other parts of the mainland United States. Marianne spoke to her family members on the phone regularly prior to her disappearance, but it appears that she fell out of touch sometime between mid-to-late July and early August of 2008. 

Marianne's NamUs page states that she last spoke to her mother on July 18th, 2008. It was later determined that Marianne was last seen in Waikiki on August 3rd, 2008. Her family members reported her missing weeks later, after she did not show up for her planned trip to Oregon. 

Very little information is available about Marianne's case. Local Hawaiian news sources have reported about her disappearance, but details have been minimal. In April 2014, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reported that Marianne's husband filed for divorce - but further details about the husband and their relationship prior to Marianne's disappearance are unknown. 

Despite the lack of information, it's clear that Marianne's absence was immediately worrisome to her loved ones. Reports state that relatives living as far away as Japan came to Hawaii to search for Marianne. According to Charley Project, Marianne's family believes that foul play is responsible for her disappearance.

In late 2016, an obituary for Marianne was posted on The obituary lists her date of death as August 4th, 2008. However, it appears that Marianne's remains have never been found. She is still classified as a missing person to this day.

Honolulu Crime Stoppers is offering a monetary reward for anyone with information that could solve Marianne's disappearance. If you have any information that could help the investigation, please submit a tip.
