Search on for escaped hospital patient who flew to Maui
HONOLULU | Hawaii authorities are searching for a man who was found not guilty of murder by reason of insanity after he escaped from the state hospital outside Honolulu and flew to Maui.
Honolulu police said Randall Saito, 59, left the Hawaii State Hospital at 9 a.m. Sunday and failed to return.
Maui County Police said Mr. Saito flew to Maui shortly after he left the hospital, but they don’t know where he is. He is 6 feet tall and weighs 220 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.

radioactive wastes left over from the production of plutonium for nuclear weapons, the U.S. Department of Energy said Tuesday.
The tunnel was filled with more than 4,400 cubic yards of grout intended to prevent any additional collapse, the agency said.
The tunnel partially collapsed earlier this year, prompting a brief alarm at the site that required some 3,000 workers to shelter in place.
Hanford is a sprawling site near Richland, in south-central Washington. The site was created during the Manhattan Project in World War II and made most of the plutonium in the nation’s nuclear stockpile, including the atomic bomb dropped on Nagasaki, Japan.
Workers now are engaged in a massive cleanup of the wastes, which is expected to take decades and cost more than $2 billion a year.
