Thank goodness, Ian Turner has be found in Atlanta without his passport. It is truly amazing the effort the whole SEO community put through to try to track him down. It shows you something about this group of people.
Nick Wilson of ThreadWatch was instrumental in getting this going. He created the official Ian Turner Missing: Facts Page which helped keep everyone worried about Ian in the loop, as well as bridge the communication of Ian's whereabouts. At about 5:30, ThreadWatch received a comment by DaveN (who was in contact with Ian' wife throughout the time) which sprung the new post named Ian Turner Found!
Forums that I know of, that did what they can to get the word out include: - WebmasterWorld: Ian Turner Missing - WebmasterWorld:Ian Found - Safe and Sound - Search Engine Watch Forums - HighRankings Forum
Glad he is back and safe! Have a wonderful weekend all, and a happy July 4th!
