The Kim family was traveling from Portland to Gold Beach, Oregon, on their way home to San Francisco after Thanksgiving. They did not arrive at their destination and a search is currently being conducted. Photos and information are here. I'm sure their friends and family as well as the police are desperate for information. Kati Kim is known to many in the craft community as the owner of Doe and Church Street Apothecary, her boutiques in San Francisco.

The Kims are traveling with their two small children. I hope they will be found safe very soon.

*8:00 p.m.: As far as I can tell from news reports, the search continues. Please keep the Kims in your thoughts and prayers.


I hope they are found safe too!!

I heard about his and am so very sad about it. I really hope they are found safely very soon.

I read about this at Lisa's blog and have been praying for them ever since.

Their family is in my prayers today.
I hope they are found safe.

As soon as I finish typing this, I will drop to my knees and pray. I have forwaded the info to my friends in the pacific northwest, and have looked at the photos and memorized their license plate on the off chance that they might be found here in Atlanta. I wish I could do more.

How awful. Good thoughts for their safe return.

I just saw the story on the news.
So troubling and sad.
I'll add my prayers for their rescue and hope they're home safe and sound soon.

I know that Apothecary on Church St. I wanted to cry when I heard the news. I really hope the family is safe and they'll be found soon.

Their family will be in my prayers. I hope they are found soon and hope they are safe.

Oh god how horrible! I hope they are found safe and soon. :(

I hope and pray they're alright.

How utterly heartbreaking. Please do let us know if you hear anything. Thanks, Alicia.

this gave me goosebumps - praying for their safe return to loved ones

there was a story about the kims on the today show this morning. the police said there is no evidence of foul play as of now. i hope they are safely found soon.

I have been praying since yesterday when I found out about them. I'll continue praying for the Kims and their family members. I personally know how heartwrenching it is to have a loved one(s) be missing.

Oh my God this is so very, very horrible I hope and pray that they will turn up safe and sound soon.

oh no.

i'll be thinking of them and hope that they return home safely and soon!

Yesterday I e-mailed cnn to try to get to them to cover it and it looks like they've listened to the ones of us who emailed! I just saw information on it on cnn! I hope maybe that'll make them find them faster. :(
