Police Seek Help in Locating Advertiser Heir



Honolulu Advertiser heir and musician David Twigg-Smith has gone missing.

Police have issued a call for information in an effort to locate 27-year-old Twigg Smith, who is described as 5-foot-11, 185 pounds with curly brown hair and brown eyes. He may have a beard. He has a physical condition that requires medication, and has often been seen at Kona area beaches. He was last seen by his family October 10 in Kailua-Kona.  Twigg-Smith grew up in Holualoa, where his family has a large house.  He’s posted a number of You Tube videos of himself playing his songs, including this one.

The Twigg-Smiths, who trace their ancestry back to missionary Asa Thurston, controlled the Advertiser until it was sold to a subsidiary of the Gannett Corporation for $250 million in 1993.
