The wife and daughters of missing CNET senior editor James Kim have been found. 30-year-old Kati along four year-old Penelope and seven-month Sabine were found by search and rescue helicopters at around 1:45 PM PST near in Josephine County, Oregon. James Kim is still missing.
The Kims drove north from San Francisco for Thanksgiving road trip. Authorities were notified after James didn’t show up on Tuesday November 28th. Since then several law enforcement agencies including the Oregon State Patrol, California Highway Patrol and local sheriffs departments have helped in the search.
Search and rescue crews combed through cell phone tower records to track the Kim’s travel route. Helicopters were sent to the area and luckily found the wife and daughters today after Kati waved an umbrella to attract the pilot’s attention. The three have been transported to a hospital, but their condition is not known.
Apparently James Kim left the car about two days ago to find help for his family and no further word has been heard from him.
