It works: Web posting reunites quake family

Rob Delissen had no idea whether his brother Theo, his wife and their two-year-old daughter were still alive after the tsunami hit Thailand.
The Dutchman was one among thousands of people trying to trace family and friends after a disaster which claimed tens of thousands of lives.

Shattered communications only added to the difficulty of getting news.

But a posting by a stranger on the BBC News website led Mr Delissen to his relatives, who had all survived.
