Where can I find information on someone missing as a result of the earthquake in Haiti?
On Jan. 12, 2010, a massive earthquake struck Haiti, leaving thousands of people missing or unable to contact relatives in other parts of the world. To help people search for loved ones, sites such as The New York Times and CNN have launched databases, where you can enter the name of a missing friend or family member. You can also upload photos of the missing, and submit comments. Google launched an application that allows you to search for someone or provide information on someone, and the Family News Network of the International Committee of the Red Cross has a running list of people who are missing, as well as capabilities that allow you to register yourself as an unharmed victim, or a family member as missing.
