No new information regarding missing Johnson
Former Petersburg resident, Boaz Johnson, last spoke with his family Monday, May 27 and has not been heard from since.
Johnson's girlfriend Brittany Royal was found strangled off the lower coastline of Puna by fishermen.
Hilo Criminal Investigations Lt. Greg Esteban stated that they are pursuing leads in the case but have not found Bo Johnson.
The couple had been camping the day before Royal was found.
“Photos and evidence of the campsite have been sent to a forensic lab,” Esteban said. “As a result of the investigation so far, he is still considered a missing person but is not excluded as a suspect in this homicide case.”
