Lycos launches Katrina meta search tool

Lycos launches Katrina meta search tool: This morning, I pointed to Yahoo!’s Katrina: Search for Missing People meta search tool that searches for names across numerous missing person forums and databases. I just learned that Lycos has a similar Search Katrina Missing Persons Sites meta search service.

Quote from Danny Sullivan, SearchEngineWatch.com:

In one go, it checks listings from more than 35 missing person sites that have sprung up since the storm. Sources of these listings are listed in the right-hand navigation.

Observation: An instant comparison (using several last names) of the two search tools leads me to think Yahoo! has a better approach and results. However, if I were looking for a loved one, I’d obviously use both.
