Using the internet to save lives

Are you searching for a person with mental illness who has gone missing? Do you know someone else that is? USA Today reported on how the Internet can be a helpful tool to find people. There are a number of social networking tools and websites that might be helpful. For example:

Tina Gorman of Webster, Fla., has been searching for 3½ years for her missing son, John Townsend, 31, who has bipolar disorder. She posts messages on the Internet in hopes someone with information will contact her. She also included a link on her work website to her son's profile at the National Center for Missing Adults.

We hope Tina Gorman's son, and all the other missing family members who are out there, will be found unharmed.
