Ian Turner has been found - alive and healthy!

He has lost his passport and he is in Atlanta. Should be home with family shortly.

WOW! What a relief to know he is alright.

I have nevet met Ian, but he and his family have been in our thoughts and prayers since I learned about this. It is truly incredible how the community came together trying to help in every way possible. Now that we know he is well and on his way to be back home, it is time, imho, that we all pull back, and let the man and his family have the privacy and the time they may need away from public scrutiny as they try to recover from this event.

Hey GoogleGuy, Thanks for posting this on your blog.

woohoo, Ian is out of the sandbox! ;)

while I never met the guy, I gotta say, this would have been on my mind all weekend. Glad he is back with his family, as I am sure his family is.

Major relief! I'm sure it will make a good story to tell over a few pints some night.

Half one in the morning here and that's the best news I've had all month. But Ian, you ruined my Friday night out: I couldn't stop thinking about you :)

My congratulations to Ali for her strength in such a trying situation, and for her concern for her kids.

Brilliant, brilliant news! The details are private and irrelevant - the only important thing is that he is safe and well.

For a person I've never met, nor will I probably ever meet, this has been pretty worrysome for me. Brett, this event should show you how powerful this community is. Pretty amazing, huh?

Thanks be to whoever/whatever got him found safely.

Like a large number of other 'quieter' members, I'm sure every-one of use would have done whatever we could have to help, should we have been able to.

Very happy for Ian's family!

You sly dog. What a brilliant way to get high quality inbound links to your site(s)! Your PR will shoot through the roof!

I kid of course. Very happy to hear that this ended so positively. I'm also very honoured to be a member of such a caring group. i bet the founder(s) of this forum had no idea.

Been checking while on vacation for updates, even though I've never met him. Glad to hear he is ok. What a truly great worldwide community of peers, competitors and professionals who realize how small the world actually is.

Welcome home Ian.

I am very happy for you and your family Ali.

Thanks for all your help Brett.

Brett often talks about creating a community in WebmasterWorld. It's not just a place to post and learn (although it's great for that), the word community seems to be an over arching goal (at least IMHO).

The response from many webmasters, bloggers, and just internet junkies has been amazing to watch over the past couple days.

I think these few days shows that this isn't just a forum - it's a community.

Thanks to Brett for that.

Welcome home, Ian.

TREMENDOUS NEWS!

I don't know Ian, but I have been checking back religously for news. Glad all has worked out and he is "safe and sound".

Brett - I have never met you either, but it is just amazing how this forum has come together as a community...an international/global community. A simple "thanks" doesn't seem like enough, but sometimes is speaks a thousand words.

What wonderful news! I have been so worried! I sat with Ian at lunch at the conference one day and then bumped in to him a couple times after and it was just freaking me out that harm could have been done... I kept hoping - let this be a walkabout or an episode of "The Terminal"... I honestly don't CARE what it was! Just absolutely happy that he's safe! :)

I totally agree with the thoughts posted by others in this thread...

I am also in the investigative business and am very familiar with how situations like this don't always have such happy endings. I've very relieved that Ian is safe and will soon be with his family again. I've never personally met Ian and didn't even know about him until today - it is certainly clear that he has a lot of people who care for him so I feel like he must be a terrific individual.

As the old saying goes, actions speak louder than words, and it's refreshing to see such a large group of people ready and willing to help in any way possible. Very cool indeed! You all have my respect and admiration.

Welcome back Ian. I didn't speak with you at the conference but I definately noticed you. So tall and that hair, you reminded me of my brother. Glad all is well.

So glad to see good news which is so rare these days!

I can't believe I didn't think of the passport issue as the reverse happened to a friend of mine who flew to London, somehow lost her passport in the flight (she was able to board) and was put into a detaining cell and treated fairly unpleasantly until it was all straightened out.

So I hope he was treated a bit better over here (but probably not)...

I won't ask what happened - very glad everything worked out!

PS: Brett, you have 5 asterisks on the left of the message above on the top right, and only 4 on the right.. I'm probably the only perfectionist that noticed :) - I'm extraordinarily sensitive to balance and thus feeling a little dizzy right now - he he he

Seriously made my week but what the hell happened? One minute I'm watching Ian swiming circles in the pool on the sixth floor of a crappy hotel and the next I'm praying for his safety. What happened?
