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,

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.
