 [liberationtech] **Help needed** Jacob Boehm is missing in Malaysia--
we need your help

Please spread the word however you can.

It would be awesome if you guys could post this as your status: Do you
know anyone in Malaysia? Jacob Boehm, a friend from Stanford, is
missing there. His parents have filed a missing person case at the
embassy. If you know anything at all about it or know anyone in
Malaysia who could keep an eye out for him, let me know. His parents
are trying to get the word out via social networking, so repost as you
see fit. We have a picture we can forward to anyone who might be
And post the attached photo on facebook. His parents want to try to
contact people in Malaysia who might have seen him
>From his parents:

Dear friends of Jacob,

None of us have heard from Jacob in 6 days.  He had been contacting us
by phone or email nearly every day since June.  His g-mail account has
not been accessed during this time.

We are working with the US and German Embassies in Malaysia, and have
escalated the case to a missing persons case.

We need your help.

Can social media be used to alert people who are traveling in Malaysia
and may have seen Jacob or could be on the look out for him?

Do you have other ideas on how we might continue our search?

I've attached a photo that could be posted or circulated.

With a painful heart,

Chapel Hill, North Carolina
