dear all,

i found your e-mail addresses through the tsunami blog you set up. i have a close friend who is in india. she was visiting andrha pradesh and sri lanka to see family. i haven't heard from her since before the tsunami. i'm very, very worried. i've called the state dept. # that was given on tv, but they said they will only contact me if she notifies the embassy or if they find her.

if any of you are in the areas i mentioned or anywhere else (she mentioned in her last e-mail that she was traveling around many places), can you offer any advice or help? has anyone seen her? i'm including links to three pictures i've uploaded of her.
