Kaniho was last seen inside her residence on Wright Road in the Volcano Village area of Hawaii County, Hawaii sometime during August 1988. She has never been heard from again.

Her father alleged that her mother left with Kaniho when she was two years old in 1971. He claimed that he did not know their daughter was missing until 2002, nearly 14 years after Kaniho vanished. Few details are available in Kaniho's case, which remains unsolved.
