SAN FRANCISCO — A Google Inc. marketing manager has gone missing in Cairo, where violent protests against the ruling regime have embroiled Egypt's capital for the past week.
Wael Ghonim's whereabouts have been unknown since last Thursday evening. That's when Google says he was spotted in central Cairo.
Google wants anyone with information about Ghonim to call a United Kingdom phone number: +44-20-7031-3008.
Ghonim oversees Google's marketing in the Middle East and Africa from the company's Dubai office. He has been part of Google's management team there since late 2008, according to information posted on what appears to be Ghonim's account on professional networking site LinkedIn. That page also says Ghonim graduated from Cairo University in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in computer engineering. In 2007, he got his master's degree in marketing and finance from American University in Cairo, according to that LinkedIn account.
