51-year-old Kevin Winters was last seen in Lahaina, Hawaii on September 3, 2021. He disappeared that morning after using an ATM to deposit a check from his mother.
Kevin Winters was born in Michigan to parents Maxine and Don Winters. He grew up in Jennison with three siblings.
As a teenager, Winters was involved in a dirt bike accident that left his right leg shorter than his left. He wore shoes with a special lift to help ease the pain to his hip ever since.
In 2007, Winters moved from Michigan to Maui, Hawaii, where he eventually settled. He worked as a housekeeper at the North Shore Hostel in Wailuku where he traded labor for a place to stay.
On September 1, 2021, Winters lost his job of fourteen years at the North Shore Hostel. He was supposedly fired and given a week to move out after being caught stealing a cell phone left by a coworker in a common area.
At the time of his disappearance, Winters was single and living with no family in Maui. He regularly called his family and 75-year-old mother in Michigan who has health issues.
Described as kind-hearted and friendly, Winters often spent time at the beach and local bars where he would enjoy drinking beers and cocktails.

It is unknown where he spent that night, but it may have been in a 350-foot storage garage, a few blocks from the hostel, that he had been using for years to store an idle 1994 purple Jeep and a couch among other belongings.

On September 8, 2021, his family filed a missing person’s report with the Maui Police Department after they weren’t able to contact him.
