lazy web people-finding?

I’m trying to find my very best friend from junior high & high school. Last I heard, around the time we moved to Olympia, she was going back to southern Cal to live with her mom while she did her residency, IIRC at UCLA Medical. Only when I sent a holiday card to her mom’s old address, it bounced. I did a little research, and the house was sold in September 2003….

Googling doesn’t help, because her name is as anonymous in Vietnamese as my mother’s is in English.

So, if anybody out there knows the whereabouts of a Thao Tran who went to college at Pomona and med school at Johns Hopkins, I’d really like to know. I miss her.
