How do I find a lost friend?

The last time we have spoken was about 8 to 10 yrs ago. She moved away and I lost her address. I know her and her husband is from San Jose, CA. and he got out from the Navy then fell off from the face of the earth.

  • Sometimes you'll find they have joined Facebook or MySpace.

  • Sometimes people don't want to be found though. I have a great friend from high school. I've even gone so far as to contact one of her ex husband's. When I called, she just wasn't that thrilled. I was passing through town one time and offered to meet her somewhere so we could visit. She never showed. Sometimes, you just have to forget. However, it's worth a shot to try seeing if she's on Facebook. Mine is, unfortunately, not.

  • I have a couple of great friends I made that were in the Air Force, but I've not had any luck finding them :( I have a feeling they got married or, being the AF, they've moved around a lot. FB you pretty much have to know what town they're in or go through every single name match. I wish I could say "Jane Doe", "Arizona" and get some luck.
