Some Kim Family Found
The wife and daughters of James Kim, whose family was reported missing, were found today by search times looking for the group, according to an update by CNET. The Portland Police indicated that James' wife Kati, as well as daughters Penelope and Sabine, were found in "good condition" by rescuers and have been airlifted to a nearby hospital. James, however, has not been found and is said by Kati to have left on foot in order to seek help. The family survived its ordeal by conserving its limited supplies, keeping warm with the car heater, and even burning the car tires when the heater was no longer available, officials said.
Search teams are continuing a round-the-clock search and hope to find James alive given his good condition before leaving the car. We at Electronista hope for the entire family to be reunited shortly and wish the rescuers the best of success.
