A search for a 6-year-old girl in Hawaii has been suspended after she went missing from her bedroom a week ago, officials said Monday.

While the search was suspended on Monday, a spokesman for the department said the investigation into Kalua’s disappearance would remain active with detectives on any clues, Honolulu Star-Advertiser informed of.
Family spokesman William Harrison told the newspaper that Kalua’s adoptive parents immediately called authorities at 6 a.m. on September 13, when they learned the child was missing. He allowed the police to search the house and cooperated with the investigation.
Harrison said the girl often left the house at night to sleep in the yard and the electronic locks on the house confirmed that she was gone overnight.
According to local reports, the biological parents of the 6-year-old also joined in the search for the child, who was named Ariel Sellers.
The week-long search involved several law enforcement agencies and hundreds of volunteers who searched the entire Waimaloo area on the island of Oahu for signs of kalua. KHON2 told.
A candlelight vigil for Kalua was held at Waimalo District Park on Sunday, where community members prayed for the child’s safety.
Police said Kalua likely wore a black hoodie, black leggings with colored socks, and a Nike slide with a pink bottom.
