Thai alphabet Dec 27, 2004

I couldn't access more than the first page (she is not on that page) - too many connections. Your friend may use this alphabet explanation ( trying to identify the first consonants of the name and, when matching, the other letters. I hope he can't find her name.

International Committee of the Red Cross Dec 29, 2004

Dear willdlp,
the INternational Red Cross has a list of people in the region of the disaster who have contacted them. Unfortunately the name of the girl your friend is looking for isn´t in the list, but he can visit the site and register her name there. She or someone who has any news about her will be able to contact your friend back.

They also give links for other sites about people in that region.
Good luck.
