Subject:This isn't creepy, is it?
Time:10:12 am
Last night I got curious about what happened to an old friend from high school. I did what anyone would do and googled her name, plus various combinations of things that I knew about her. No dice. I tried to remember her little brother's name and couldn't. I remembered her mother's name, did a zaba search for it, and I'm 99% certain I found her.

Is it creepy to send her a letter saying, "I've always wondered what happened to... would you pass my contact information on to her?"

I don't think so, and especially not in this context.
Her mother is a very natural link to try and find her, and is most likely to appreciate the effort.

I don't think it's creepy.

I had an old friend show up at my mom's door after 20 some odd years asking for me. He did this at the most opportune time for me, because it was just about the time I was getting a divorce, and seeing an old friend who I had lost contact with was very cheering to me. Mom told him she would call me and pass on his contact information, which she did. I was really glad she did.

i vote for "not creepy".

creepy might be "check the social security death index before sending mail"

Not unless you are a stalker. In other words, "no".

I ran across a post on a reunion-of-sorts site from a kid I knew in middle school, back in my former life away from OR. I dropped him a note even though the post was from at least a year and a half ago. No response yet, but the email didn't bounce. I still wonder what he's up to.

I think you overstated your opinion, T.

Asking for your friend's contact info might be creepy or shady. Asking if she would pass along your contact info is not; it gives the other person some control and privacy.
