Mystery deepens around missing Oakland woman

Filed under
Reiser

Nine days have passed since Nina `Nenasha" Reiser was last seen dropping off her son and daughter at their father's Montclair home, and the mystery surrounding her disappearance deepened Tuesday.

Amidst revelations of a tumultuous divorce, police said they found the 31-year-old mother's missing 2001 Honda mini-van in another part of Montclair near Highway 13 last week.

In addition, police had her children, ages 5 and 6, removed from the custody of their father, Hans Reiser, last Friday and placed with county Child Protective Services.

A search of the van and the surrounding area, including hunts by specially-trained tracking dogs, have failed to produce any tangible leads, police said.

Nina Reiser was supposed to have picked up her children on Sept. 4 but did not do so, and a friend alerted the authorities.

Reiser was born and raised in Russia, where she practiced as a gynecologist, friends said. She moved to the United States in 2000, where she and her husband started a technology company.

re: tidbits

Too bad it's Reisers wife, otherwise you could just run autorecovery and fsck would probably find her.

Hopefully they find her...

I was reading an article about this over at SFGate the other day, and actually snickered at the last name... I had no idea it was actually related to the filesystem. I didn't know it was named after anyone...

Hopefully they find her though... must be stressful on the family .

re: Hopefully they find her...

Yeah, I hope they do as well. When I first read of it, I investigated to be sure in my mind that it was indeed the Hans Reiser of reiserfs before posting about it. Then of course other linux sites picked up on it, dug deeper, and confirmed it as well.

I can't print in public what I think happened to her, but you can probably guess. I can say I fear she may never be found, at least alive. It's just so wicked that something like this could happen in our little Linux community.

Emulator now runs x86 apps on all Raspberry Pi models

Eltech’s faster ExaGear Desktop software version now supports ARMv6, in addition to ARMv7, letting users run x86 apps on all models of the Raspberry Pi. Russia-based Eltechs announced its ExaGear Desktop virtual machine last August, enabling Linux/ARMv7 SBCs and mini-PCs to run x86 software. That meant that users of the quad-core, Cortex-A7-based Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, could use it as well, although the software was not yet optimized for it. Read more
