Cnet's James Kim gone missing? - Page 2

post #16 of 211
Jeez.. the classic mistake.

In a survival situation, you should NEVER leave your vehicle if you know people could be searching for you.

Many have died doing the same thing James did, while the ones who stayed at the vehicle were rescued in days.

No one knows yet... I am following this story very close for the past couple of days... Hope James is allright.

I so hope he is alive. Good news that they found 3 members alive, now please do find the 4th. It is always horrible to read about when people go missing.

Quoted from Engadget:
"Press conference updates: Apparently James's tracks were found for two miles leading away from their car, and followed along the side of a road, over a ridge and into a ravine. Choppers will continue the search through the night with night vision optics."

Let's hope James' resourcefulness pulls him through. I sincerely hope he's okay.

Seconded.

I really hope all ends well.
I think engadget just added this. It's from the same link as above.
"Kati and the children are reportedly in "very good shape." Carson helicopters, Randy Jones, and federal agencies had four ships in the air at all times, and were assisted by Edge Wireless's cell-tower hit model which helped locate the Kims' wireless signals. The search will continue with dogs, more choppers, and all possible resources 24x7. James is likely to have made it as far as 20 miles.

The Kims were stuck in the snow off a main road; for the last 8 days the family kept warm at night by running their car. Eventually the Kims burned tires at night when the gas ran out. James left his family at 7:45AM with the intention to return by 1:00PM that day, but obviously has not yet returned. Those concerned are encouraged to check FlashAlert.net for further updates."

I really hope that they can find him tonight in good health. That would make me extremely happy for him and his family, and knowing that he's fine would just be nice to know already.

8 days alone in a car? Wow...did they have any food or water? That is an incredible survivor story.

Prayers go out to James Kim.

x2

Although I have to admit I didn't know who James Kim was until this incident, I really hope everything resolves. It's great that so many friends have volunteered to help, renting out helicopters, etc. I don't want to imagine the circumstances he's in now... Stay strong!

I can imagine driving in the middle of nowhere in Oregon with just a cellphone is not enough, a GPS SOS device would help a lot.

Unfortunately, he works at a technology place, and I doubt he has a lot of experience with outdoor stuff and camping...
