The body of a Navy veteran who went missing while on his Hawaiian honeymoon was found Friday, authorities said.
Maui police said a volunteer found the body of Stephen Kramar, 27, on a hillside a half-mile from the resort where he and his bride were staying on the island of Molokai.
Kramar, a Maryland native, and his wife, Jeffanie, arrived in Hawaii hours after their Sept. 8 nuptials. On Tuesday morning, he left to scout a hiking trail to make sure it was safe for the couple and never made it back to the hotel.
Locals have said the area is a dangerous place for hiking for those not familiar with it.
“He’s a very avid hiker,” Jeffanie Kramar told Washington’s FOX 5 before learning of her husband’s death. “He’s hiked 14,000-foot mountains. He’s very extreme, but he knows what he’s doing. He was in the military. He served in the Navy for almost three years so he’s trained and experienced.”
“He said if you don’t hear back from me around 6 o’clock, 7 o’clock, then you should be worried,” she said.
Hawaii News Now reported that Jeffanie Kramar said her husband left around 9:30 a.m. and that she received a text message from him at 2:30 p.m. stating that he was on his way back.
