Details of Disappearance Alcotas and her boyfriend, Jojo Acosta, disappeared while hiking in the area of Hanauma Bay in Honolulu, Hawaii, on October 10, 2014. They were last seen at 7:00 a.m. At 1:00 p.m., hikers found the couple's bags unattended on the rocks in a scenic area known as the Rock Bridge. Access to the Rock Bridge is prohibited to the public, but hikers often go anyway.
Authorities believe Acosta and Alcotas hiked out to the Rock Bridge and then were swept off the rocks and into the water. At 3:00 p.m. on the day of their disappearance, Acosta's body was found in the water near Hanauma Bay.
An extensive search on foot, by air, by boat, by jet-ski and even by divers turned up no indication of Alcotas's whereabouts. She is presumed to have died in a mishap like Acosta did.
