I believe all of us are aware of Japan’s worst 9.0 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami in history on 11 March 2011. Until now, the tsunami alert is still active and people fear of the risk of a further explosion or leak of radioactive material brought by damaged nuclear plant. Many people have been evacuated to the safer shelters.
There are many people missing in the affected areas such as Miyagi, Iwate, Fukushima, Tochigi and Ibaragi and the rescue teams are having difficulty to reach some badly damaged areas. Therefore, many people are losing contacts with their friends, relatives after the earthquake. There are several People Finder methods available such as Google People Finder, Facebook People Finder, Family Links Website and Sina Twitter App to find Earthquake missing people.
Google Person Finder
Google launched Google Person Finder to locate and search those missing people in Japan 2011 earthquake. You can look for missing people or you can provide information regarding missing people in the earthquake.
Facebook Event : Confirm that you are safe

Family Links Network for Japan 2011 Earthquake
In order to restore back family links after the Japan Earthquake, Japanese Red Cross Society (JRCS), in cooperation with the International Committee of Red Cross (ICRS) has set up a family link network especially for Japan 2011 Earthquake. The main purpose to set up family links website is to help restore contact between people who have lost touch because of the Japan Earthquake.
Sina Twitter App to find people in Japan Earthquake
China Twitter – Sina Twitter or Sina Weibo has developed an Earthquake People Finder app to allow its users to find their friends and relatives in Japan and users in Japan can update the latest status about their situation.
