Two Smash players, Professor Guppy and Smrofo, were reported missing by "Pauleke," and @Nai_Yako. Over a 12 hour period people of informing one another with their interactions with the Smashers in order to build a timeline, contacting the authorities, and tons of community support, the two smashers were found.
It started with the initial post by @Nai_Yako on Twitter. Being a concerned friend of the two, he went out of his way to make a post about the missing Smash players on Twitter. After a few responses from other players, such as Pauleke who describes having lunch with Professor Guppy, it was assumed that at least one of the two players should have been playing at the Frostbite pools at 6 p.m..

We have not found any notable leads or heard anything from these two. We called the police and were told that nothing could be done as far as looking for them until tomorrow. Please keep your eyes open for them. https://t.co/oDqU8oDRRP
Past seven hour mark, Pauleke informed everyone that the authorities had gotten involved in the search.
As the search continued, many community members extended their condolences and sympathy towards searchers who seemed to be working very diligently to find their lost friends and family. One of Guppies' family members extended their worries about the situation.
I'm worried about my brother so please if you see either of them, let me know or anybody in SL that's there know. He ended up getting DQ'd from bracket, which blows my mind since he was so excited for this.— Captin Falkin™ (@Its_Sunfish) February 11, 2018
I'm hope he's being a goon or is passed out somewhere, fingers crossed. https://t.co/4EjwbHVPe7
