I had this sitting in my inbox for a couple of days.

Hi all,

This child has missed its parents in the Tsunami incident. just keep passing this, somewhere this child’s parents might come to know the whereabouts of this child

Please send this to everyone you know, as we don’t have anything to lose. Atleast the boy might regain his family!

Looking for his family.

The boy about 2 years, from Khoa Lak is missing his parents. Nobody knows what country he comes from. If anyboy known him please contact us by phone 076-249400-4 ext. 1336, 1339 or e- mail :

Normally, such mails are marked for deletion and despatched forthwith. Sometimes, if I know the sender really well, I try and send them a link from Snopes or UL or the Straight Dope which lets them know that such forwards are not helping anyone. This one however, had me thinking, and a couple of searches turned up nothing, until today. I found a BBC report about this boy being reunited with his father.

Link was sent to the sender of the mail, and the loop closed. Peace, at last!
