July 14, 2008— -- Police and the medical examiner's office have identified a body discovered below the Pali Highway lookout as Steven Thomas, the 36-year-old millionaire who has been missing for two weeks.
Three hikers found the body Sunday, a couple hundred feet below the lookout. It was recovered by firefighters who had to be lowered into the forested area.
Thomas founded a Colorado-based Internet software security company and owned a home in Boulder. He had been missing since June 30. He was last seen in Waikiki, where his mother and a cousin were staying.
Cardis Thomas said her husband was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in April but refused medication. Thomas was arrested April 27 and taken to Castle Medical Center after he ran naked into the middle of a race in front of his home in the Lanikai.
Thomas is the founder of Boulder-based Webroot Software Inc. The software company that created the Spy Sweeper and Window Washer programs was sold in 2004 to a group of investors for about $108 million.
