Kahaleauki, 38, is described as Hawaiian, 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing orange M.C.C.C. clothing with leg shackles.

Kahaleauki is considered dangerous and police are warning residents to approach him with "extreme caution."

Anyone with information on Kahaleauki's whereabouts is asked to call 911, contact the Criminal Investigation Division at 244-6425, or call CrimeStoppers at 242-6966.
