I wouldn’t expect anything less from a true search giant. Instead of sitting on its hands during the tsunami that has stricken Japan, Google has put together a Person Finder tool where people worried about the plight of their loved ones can look them up by name (and picture). As of right now, there are only a few thousands records up on the site, but it should still be a useful repository for missing persons data, particularly since mobile networks were taken down by the tsunami’s damage. More information should also start piling up as recovery efforts continue. Let’s just hope this Person Finder won’t have to be used for too long and things are brought back to normal as soon as possible.
