Birth: unknown
Death: Aug. 25, 1985

Maile, 6, was abducted from her home in Kailua, Hawaii, during a family party on August 25, 1985. She was raped, sodomized, chocked and drowned afterwards and her body was found the next day in a shallow grave along the shoreline, between Mokuleia and Kaena Point on the northwest corner of Oahu, Hawaii. James Lounsbery from Ka'a'awa, an acquaintance of Maile's father, was convicted of murdering her. He is serving a life sentence in prison. Maile was a first-grader at Aikahi Elementary School when she died. The MAILE Alert, Hawaii's equivalent of an Amber Alert, was named after her. The MAILE Alert notifies the public of abducted children through radio and television bulletins and electronic highway billboards. All bio information is from the website Children Who Never Made It Home (

Sadly you are not here to share this special time of the year with your family and friends. It will most likely be the last time I will be able to visit you little Angel, Merry Christmas.

I am sorry Maile. But everything happens for a reason. I may not know that reason, but just know there was a reason for this terrible thing.
