I've contacted the members of the SMA-NA working group and posted a notice on the homepage of the SMA-NA website.

Additionally, I contacted Dana at SEMPO and she will be sending out an email blast to their members, as well.

Both organizations send their best wishes and hopes for our colleague.

Ian

I assume this is true, if in fact, HE did get on a flight to Atlanta.

but I guess that can be questioned as well.

Chris it was used but we don't know by who as yet... if that makes sense.. the police should have reviewed the cctv by tommorrow..

Ian has not used his email account since friday, I'm helping out his business partners at the moment, but the last Positive sighting was saturday morning the day before the flight.. I was one of the last to leave on sunday and didn't see Ian saturday or sunday, and I was in the hotel all the time.

I've passed along the info to a contact of mine at CBS News who in turn has notified CBS Stations in New Orleans and Atlanta and she also called a friend at CNN in Atlanta. Hopefully we can get some coverage on this.

Joe, please note Ali Turner's (ian's wife) wishes over in threadwatch regarding the media's involvement.

(though I agree local media coverage here, in NO/ATL is probably a good idea)

Yes I've been in contact with Ali and let her know about the possible local TV coverage. Her last note to me didn't indicate any new updates and that she was going to try and get some sleep.

Notices have been going up all sorts of places, which is great -- hoping for the best.

Threadwatch has a lot of details of what's being done, and Ian's wife Ali is providing lots of updates: http://www.threadwatch.org/node/3008

Joe, I've started PPC campaigns on both Adwords and Yahoo! for "Ian Turner" pointing to http://www.threadwatch.org/ian which has the most updated information.

Whew! What a relief!

You know, I (I'm sure with everybody else) learned just how tight our little community is. People came together, Forums banded together, and homepages across the Internet were altered for a cause for 'One of Our Own'. I'm proud to say I'm a member of this community and I wouldn't change what I do for a living for anything!

Thanks everyone for all of your help and support!

(Nacho you can take down the PPC campaign now...)

yes, I'm so relieved.

I got only a few minutes to see the good news yesterday, so it was great to catch up on all the good news today.
