SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Investigators are wondering if a Polish scientist who has been missing for nearly two months really did fly to Hawaii.

A woman now claims she sat next to 34-year-old Piotr Drabik on a Delta Air Lines flight from Utah. He was supposed to fly to Salt Lake from Edmonton, Alberta, and then on to Honolulu last month.

Authorities say there's no evidence Drabik made the connecting flight but a passenger claims she saw him.

Although Hawaii police want to know where Drabik is, officers say they have no plans to search the state. Drabik was last seen in Alberta on August 24th
