Lost Trekkers - Celebrating 7 Years of Reuniting People Worldwide
Vancouver, BC, Canada - October 29 2013 - Looking for someone? Tried searching the Internet or social media, with no results? Don’t have a full name, or any name? Then losttrekkers.com may be able to help, with over 7,000 classified ads posted in 143 countries they have helped more than 400 people reconnect with each other.
Originally a website for travelers who wanted to find people they met on the road, Lost Trekkers has graduated into an all-purpose people search site. There are ads looking for lost friends, loves, family, biological parents and adopted children. The site is organized by country and is entirely free to use - there is no registration required to search. Registered ad placers can customize their messages and add pictures.
“I wanted Lost Trekkers to be available to everyone, for that reason I chose to not charge for the service; I love getting emails from people who have reconnected and to be able to help people, and in some cases change their lives. It's incredible, I have the best job ever.” said Sharlene, site founder and backpacking globetrotter.
Lost Trekkers is an international people search classified ad website, founded in 2006. The idea came after losing the contact information of some people she'd met while on holiday in Mexico; with no last names, Sharlene found that there was a dearth of resources to find them again, and the idea for the website was born.
“Getting losttrekkers.com off the ground was one of the most difficult challenges I have ever faced. I knew some website programming going in, and I have a background in marketing. But developing, coding, maintaining, and optimizing a busy website is a full-time job. When I'm not traveling, I am totally a basement dwelling IT geek,” laughs Sharlene, "but every time someone gets found, it's worth all the hours I put in."
