If you pm me the name I can try top help you search - I have been told I am good at finding people. There are some tips in locating folks online. Place her name in quotes for one. (What I get for having a brother in comp sci and dating more than one IT guy, lol). I also have designed the Tufts Vet Student Question site we had up for a time. (I did it out of interest but I really enjoyed that experience of meeting peple and their pets. I'd like to establish a toll free number like Cornell has - I am little jealous, lol) Sorry to get off topic but let me know if I can help. I do hope you find her!! She has to BE there somewhere.
In a totally unrelated issue, some guy I loathed from school had a crush on me and kept calling and I asked him how he found me. He said he was a "skip tracer" - not a term I ever heard before. He went after ppl who did not pay bills and my guess is he was not nice about it. But he did give me some tips too. (Tho I have never used them, the whole idea sounds awful tho there is someone who owes me $500 for her share of the rent but I am NOT asking him, sigh). A lawyer friend says I may have to chalk that one up to being naive.
