Japan’s 8.9 magnitude earthquake followed by a devastating tsunami immediately prompted Google.com to launch an urgent special feature “Person Finder”
The Person Finder lets people enter an inquiry about a missing person or provide information for interested parties. A similar tool was launched after a large quake struck Chile in February 2010
The tool is available in English and Japanese. Users can click on the “I’m looking for someone” link or the “I have information about someone” link and enter what they know. Search by name or parts of a name, or – if you have information – enter the family or given name to create an entry.
