c|net Senior Editor James Kim and Family Missing

As Robert McLaws of "Windows Now" wrote, this is also not the type of story I would normally report. However, I have read a number of James Kim's articles and am a regular c|net reader as well. As a result, I feel a connection and hope that by sharing this story that some stranger may see it and be able to help.

James Kim was due back from a family trip on the west coast on Tuesday. However, the family has not been heard from since Saturday evening. From the SF Police Report:
The San Francisco Police Department is seeking information regarding a missing San Francisco family of four. On Friday, November 17, 2006, James Kim, his wife, Kati Kim, and their children, Penelope Kim and Sabine Kim left on a road trip to Seattle, Washington. The family was expected to return to San Francisco on Monday, November 27th, 2006. When both James Kim and Kati Kim did not show up for their appointments on Tuesday, November 28th, it caused their co-workers to be worried for their safety. The Kim’s are known to always keep in touch daily either by phone or e-mail with their friends and co-workers. The last known whereabouts of the Kim family was in Portland, Oregon on Saturday morning, November 25, 2006. They were driving a 2005 silver Saab station wagon with California personalized plates of “DOESF”.

The San Francisco Police Department is asking the public’s help in locating the Kim family. Anyone with information regarding their whereabouts should contact the following numbers:

SFPD Missing Persons Unit: 415-558-5508
Operations Center: 415-553-1071
