Person Finder set up for Japan disaster

Google Inc. launched its Person Finder technology Friday shortly after the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
Person Finder is an interactive database that allows users to search for missing persons online, or submit information about people who are injured or were missing.
The 8.9-magnitude earthquake set off a massive tsunami, and the two disasters have left behind floods, fires and the shutdown of public transportation systems and airports.
The Person Finder is available as a central database for people seeking information about their loved ones or government and aid agencies looking to coordinate efforts. Maps, stories and other resources are available there.
Person Finder for the Japanese earthquake can be found on a Google Crisis Response website: http:// tinyurl.com/JapanFinder.
