Latest on search for James Kim

Here's a pretty exhaustive story about the search efforts.

James family is paying for a private search to supplement the official search according to this article.

http://www.oregonlive.com/news/oregonian/index.ssf?/base/news/1165033527300600.xml&coll=7&thispage=1

The latest news on the search comes from the story on News.com

Essentially a Denny's waiter served the Kim family dinner at 8 p.m. on Saturday evening in Roseburg, OR. So the search is shifting north to try to identify the route the Kims took.

Thanks tom

In reply to: Latest on search for James Kim

It is so terrible, the family being missing and all. Its a shame that we [the non-local online community] can not do more to help other than splashing it about our blogs and sending messages to the family.

Sad

I want more info!

In reply to: Latest on search for James Kim

I think we all do. We want to hear "They have been found and all are OK, tired, hungry but OK."
Please. Tell us they are Alright.
Please God, let us know they are safe.

Let him come back and laugh it off...

In reply to: I want more info!

I am looking forward to the day when James will come back to cnet ( probably after a well-deserved break ) and be doing his weekly podcasts and crave videos again. He is the kind of person who would come back with a smile on his face, trying to make light of the situation he was involved in.

keeping him and his family in my prayers,

Thanks so much for the update

In reply to: Latest on search for James Kim

I really appreciate you guys taking the time to keep us updated on this - if I lived anywhere near the area I'd offer to drive the route too. I can only imagine how helpless his poor family feels about the search efforts - glad there were helicopters available for hire. I find it so easy to forget that the western US has so many wilderness areas where it's easy to get lost.

Contributions?

In reply to: Latest on search for James Kim

Hey,
I wondered if anything had been set up to contribute funds to what the Kim parents are currently putting up for the search? I know we're all feeling helpless. Maybe this would be a way to assist?

In reply to: Contributions?

That's a great idea. I suspect a lot of people here are willing to contribute to help the family search for them.

A Good Idea

In reply to: Contributions?

I would like to contribute as I'm sure would many others - is there a way a PayPal account or something similar could be set up by CNET?

Thank you for the updates Tom.

In reply to: Vote if you'll give time/effort/$$$ for Kim family search by shmody

I have emailed friends of the Kim family running the website www.jamesandkati.com about the possibility of having a paypal account set up.

I received the following reply:

"Hi Ross -

Please let them know that we are checking with the family and asking what their wishes are in this regard. If they give us the word we will get something up for them. At this time I know they are focused on the search and they know that if they need this resource we'll work to make it available to them.

Thanks for checking in."

Thanks for the update

In reply to: Latest on search for James Kim

I really did (sorry) think this was a joke when I saw the first story about it. I didn't read it thoroughly, and I don't know why I thought it was a joke.

I'm praying for James and Kati and their cute little girls.

Not Good

In reply to: Thanks for the update

7 days and still ticking eh? I really hope he is ok, just like everyone else, but no one, especially in a group like that with wife and kids goes missing without a big reason.

Either you don't want to be found, or something horribly wrong has happened. I'm a logical guy and where my conclusion goes isn't all that bright.

I don't know the family or James beyond cnet, but he seemed pretty level headed and to say his family went "missing" for 7 days is starting to push it. They have to find him soon in order for any news to be good.

logic, inspiration..

In reply to: Not Good

that's a rational assessment. However, I'd say that if you chose to believe in happy endings and act on them to make them so, you'll receive that happy ending that you were inspired to produce. It helps if the effort is steadfast.

Thanks for posting Tom

In reply to: Latest on search for James Kim

I went away for the weekend and was hoping to see James posting how he made back home safely... Guess I'll have to wait a bit more.
