Heartbreaking Father's Day for missing Oahu man's daughter

Posted: Updated:
KAKAAKO, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

This Father's Day is filled with sorrow for one Oahu family.

A Honolulu man vanished more than four months ago and his daughter wants nothing more than to find him.  

"I'll just hug him...I don't know what I'm going to say to him...but I'm just gonna hug him tight," said Rachel Song.

Rachel says the greatest gift she could ask for is to be with her dad this Father's Day.

It's a day when children tell their dads how much they mean to them and how much they are loved.

But sometimes, she says, you don't truly appreciate something until it's gone. 

"We just miss him so much and…we just keep thinking about those things that we didn't do good for him. And then we never realize how good dad he was to us," she said in her broken-English accent.

Rachel's father, Chang Ho Han, disappeared on January 31st.

Missing-person fliers have covered the island since then.  But so far there have been no leads.

Surveillance video captured Han coming out of the elevator in his Kakaako apartment at 6:50 p.m.  But that's when his trail went cold.

"It's hard...we don't know anything what happened to him," Rachel said.

The 70-year-old father of two and grandfather of three suffers from dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

Rachel says it is not like her father to just get up and leave despite his medical condition.

He's 5'5,165 pounds, hardly speaks any English but is fluent in Korean.  Rachel says he frequents Chinatown, Ala Moana and Waikiki.

"When I driving around, if I see someone like him...my heart pumping."

A Facebook page has been set up so those looking for him can keep in contact with each other.

"Now we are offering reward $10,000. I don't know...maybe it's not much but this is we can afford to find my dad," she said.

"I just want to say we love you so much and please hurry home."
