Any ideas on how to locate an old friend of mine from here?

He's an old college friend of mine from Washington State University but the usual google + facebook techniques have failed. It also doesn't help that he's probably one of many people here who go by the name of Michael Goh. :)

Any ideas?

Have you tried other business networking sites such as linkedin.com, spoke.com?
Chances are if he's a working professional, he may be listed.

A good way is to get in touch with WSU 's alumni association, if he is a Singaporean with an American education there is a high chance that he is in the US :)

You could be a stalker. How do we know that HE would want you to find him?! :-|

Find out what his Chinese name is. That may help narrow down the search.
