YouTube helping with search for missing in Japan

Google offered up YouTube on Friday to help victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami find missing loved ones. The Google-owned video-sharing site began posting videos of victims of the disaster appealing for information about friends and family.

The brief videos, most of which are less than a minute long, were taken in shelters around Japan and are posted at youtube.com/shousoku. The “YouTube Missing Person Finder” is a video version of a “Person Finder” Web tool launched by Google in the immediate aftermath of the quake to help track down missing persons.
