Tantalus man held after drugs found

Police arrested a 31-year-old Tantalus man on suspicion of weapon and drug offenses after he was stopped for traffic violations yesterday in Makiki.

Police said the man was stopped at about 4 p.m. at the intersection of Pi'ikoi Street and Wilder Avenue when the officer noticed a bullet near the driver's side door handle.

The man, a convicted felon, is not allowed to possess ammunition or firearms, police said. A search of the vehicle found drugs and drug paraphernalia, police said.

He was arrested on suspicion of driving without a license, two drug offenses and a weapons offense, police said.

Information sought in 1998 murder

Big Island detectives have renewed a request for information relating to the disappearance of a 36-year-old woman in 1998.

Michelle Gloria Adam, reported missing from her home in Miloli'i Beach Lots, South Kona, since June 13, 1998, was reported missing by her husband, Richard Louis Adam, on June 17, 1998.

The husband told police he last saw his wife leave home in her 1997 Toyota Celica on June 13. Two days later, he said, he found the car parked at the couple's second home in the Hawaiian Ocean View Estates subdivision of Ka'u.

In January 1999, detectives reclassified the missing persons case as a murder. They conducted a search for remains in Miloli'i and Hawaiian Ocean View Estates, but failed to turn up any evidence.

Her husband now lives in Lancaster, N.H.

Michelle Adam was described as 5 feet 1 inch, 85 pounds, with a slim build and long straight brown hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information about her disappearance is asked to call Kona police at 326-4646, the police emergency number at 935-3311 or Crime Stoppers at 329-8181 in Kona or 961-8300 in Hilo.
