Google launched People Finder following Turkey earthquake for people looking for their loved ones in the region. Through Google Person Finder, people can enter a new record in the list for a person they’re looking for. Anyone who has information for the missing people on the list can update the data. All data entered will become publicly available, viewable and usable by anyone. And you can help search and rescue teams by updating the status of missing people.
First launched to assist with the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake in January 2010. Since its debut at the start of last year, Person Finder has been used for the Christchurch, New Zealand earthquake in September 2010 and the Japanese earthquake and tsunami in March this year.
