That is one of the limitations with online communication, unfortunately. You can always try sending the person a private message, but beyond that there's not really anything that can be done. I hope you can get in contact with the person you're referring to. Good luck!
this has happened to most of us , sometimes relatives do come on to tell us if its bad news, if you have good friends its always best to ask them to tell a relative to pop onto Mh to letus know how they are doing..I have lost 2 friends this way ..it is hard not knowing ..hope you hear soon, ask around to other members if they have heard anything good luck
Thank you both for your help! :) Ash
