Find Evan and get $5000!

Evan Ratliff has gone missing - intentionally - and the hunt is on. The person who finds him will get $5000.

He wrote a piece for this month's Wired magazine about people who disappear, and is trying it himself for a month, hoping to elude a crowdsourced effort to find him and win the cash.

You can find all you need on and links and leads from there (including following #vanish on Twitter, the FindEvan wiki, a Facebook group devoted to finding him, and a FB group trying to help him hide), but the biggest lead to date suggests book lovers and bookstore employees might have the best shot.
