HILO, HI- The family of a former Alaska man whose girlfriend was found strangled in Hawaii is on the Big Island searching for indications of where he might be.


Tom and Kathy Johnson of Petersburg, Alaska, are searching for 22-year-old Boaz "Bo" Johnson.


They last spoke to him May 27, the day before the body of 25-year-old Brittany-Jane Royal was found by a fishing boat off Puna.


Johnson and Royal had camped near a lava viewing area in Kalapana.


Lt. Greg Esteban of the Hilo Criminal Investigations Section says police are pursuing leads in the death of Royal. He says Johnson is considered a missing person and has not been excluded as a suspect.


The Johnsons say their son was threatened before he disappeared.
