Red Cross Receives Reports of Missing People, Hypothermia


(14th and C Street) -- In the American Red Cross mobile command headquarters, a bus parked on 14th and C streets, a half dozen staff and volunteers hunch over laptops and radios to monitor reports from law enforcement, homeland security and other government agencies along with radioed reports from their 60 volunteers cruising the mall.

So far they have received reports of about half dozen missing people, including a missing 69 year old, said spokesman Ryan Kaltenbaugh.

Increasing numbers of reports of hypothermia are starting to come in, he said.

"We're expecting a very busy day obviously," said Kaltenbaugh.
