Nebraska Man Missing In Hawaii


      A Nebraska man has been reported missing after he did not return home after a camping trip to the Hawaiian island of Kauai. 

       23-year-old Samuel Joseph Martinez had been studying microbiology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln before he flew to Kauai on May 12 with plans to spend nearly two weeks hiking and camping. 

      His father, Ted Martinez, said Saturday the family hasn’t heard from his son since a few hours after he landed on the island. 

      The family filed a missing persons report with Lincoln Police on Wednesday a day after Samuel Martinez missed his flight home.
