This story should be at the top of the Almanac's home page. When a story is the 4th link down the column of Local News links, it usually means that newer stories have bumped it down the list. This is fresh news - only an hour old - and is also about a missing person. Who on earth decided that the story "Fire occurred at Larry Ellison's former home" should rank at the top of the column, and higher than a story about a missing person??? Seriously Almanac staff, change the top-to-bottom order!

This young man was seen yesterday afternoon near Woodside Elementary School so everyone who lives anywhere nearby should be on the lookout for him.

I wonder who even thought a story about a fire a Larry Ellisons former house was even worth running?
Do you run stories about all house fires? Or is this house special cause Larry Ellison once lived in it?
It wasn't even a major fire.

My understanding is he was located..... That said I do NOT want to start rumors but I hope the Almanac staff is keeping this updated
