Saxena had claimed the 41-year-old mother-of-two had vanished during a late night stroll on a secluded beach south of Anaehoomalu Bay, in South Kohala.

Saxena was released on Friday without charges, pending further investigation. 

The family, from Bellevue, Washington, were travelling with their two daughters aged 13 and eight to celebrate their eldest child's birthday - a trip they take every year.

Saxena claimed Smriti, a business program manager for Microsoft, suffered an asthma attack and disappeared while he went to get her inhaler from their room at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort.
