A 35-year-old yoga instructor who authorities say disappeared last week outside of a Hawaii national park.

Amanda Eller, of Haiku, was reported missing on Thursday after not having been seen since 7:30 a.m. the day before, the Maui Police Department said in a news release.

"Her car was there and her belongings were in her car. Her phone was in her car," Eller's friend, Sarah Haynes, according to KHON reports. "That is common for her. She likes to unplug when she runs."

A multi-agency search effort is underway in the search for Eller at Makawao Forest Reserve, and there is a $10,000 reward for information leading to her whereabouts. Video posted to a Facebook page set up to find her shows a group of searchers, including dogs, at the site where her car was found.

Her friend, Sarah Haynes, told Hawaii News Now that "it's not out of the ordinary for her to go there," and added: β€œIt appears to us at this point that she is either way off the trail β€” you know having gotten injured, or fallen maybe β€” or somebody interrupted her between her car and her run."

Loved ones have asked anyone available to join the search. Tips can be submitted to Detective Dennis Cliff at 808-244-6433 or Eller's friend Sarah Haynes at 415-336-4591.
