Search for Missing Person in Yosemite

Kiran of the Bay Area went missing over the weekend at Yosemite and his friends are co-ordinating a search for him. One novel method they’ve used is blogging. Some details from Find Kiran:

According to eye witness reports Kiran slipped while trying to reach for an object in the River Merced, upstream from the Vernal Falls footbridge in the Yosemite National Park on Saturday, May 19, 2007.

He got his M.S. in Computer Science from the West Virginia University in 2003, and has since been pursuing his Ph.D. in Computer Science as a part-time student at the University of Minnesota while working for nVidia in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I’m not sure how much of a help this effort would be. But I just wanted to highlight it and spread the word if it helps. Check out the blog for updates.
