James Kim (1971-2006)

December 6, 2006

James KimHard Drive Life sends its condolences to the family, friends and co-workers of CNET editor James Kim, who was found deceased just an hour ago by search teams in the Oregon wilderness.

He is survived by his wife and two young daughters, who were rescued from the woods Monday.

CNET has the story:

The body of missing CNET editor James Kim has been located, authorities announced Wednesday.

Arrangements are being made to transport Kim to an undisclosed location, according to police. Kim had been missing in the remote southwestern Oregon wilderness for 11 days. The Kim family has asked not to be contacted at this time.

“They have been true champions throughout this whole ordeal,” Josephine County Undersheriff Brian Anderson said of the family at a press conference. “We just want them to know our prayers have been with them from day one.”

After being rescued in good condition Monday, Kim’s 30-year-old wife, Kati, and daughters Penelope (4 years) and Sabine (7 months) have been reunited with family members. Kati Kim suffered frostbite on two toes, but will not lose those toes, according to a close family friend. James Kim, 35, left the stranded family car Saturday morning to search for help.

Condolences can be sent to the Kim family at this link. Many sympathetic wishes have already been pouring in.

[UPDATE: Even worse, according to MSNBC, rescuers at one time had made contact with James Kim on his cell phone:

Kim’s wife, Kati, and two daughters, Penelope, 4, and Sabine, 7 months, were rescued Monday at their car, stuck in the snow on a remote road. When he left the car Saturday, James Kim went about two miles along the road, and then headed down into a drainage area called Big Windy Creek, said Lt. Gregg Hastings of the Oregon State Police.

About 100 rescue workers and four helicopters searched for Kim, following his footprints down the creek, which leads to the Rogue River.

Searchers told NBC News that at one point they were able to make direct contact with Kim on the ground and that they had explored ways to lower a medic to the site. It was not immediately clear whether that attempt was aborted or was undertaken too late to save Kim.]
