I'm posting here just wondering if anyone has ideas what to do in this situation. It has nothing to do with mental health issues. I'm a bit concerned about my best friend. He lives on the other side of the world, we very rarely see each other, but over the last ten years we e-mail back and forth all the time, usually every few days, and skype occasionally. I know that he is very busy with work, and his wife is pregnant, but I haven't heard from him since the end of September. I've sent him a couple of short "are you there?" type e-mails, and had no answer. He's probably just hyper-busy, but I'm a bit worried, because he's a fireman, so I'm thinking that something might have happened to him. I have no other way of contacting him except by e-mail - I'm not on facebook, don't have a phone number for him, no contact details for his family etc. I do have his address, but I can't see how that helps. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.
