Missing GNU Screen maintainer

Our beloved maintainer Sadrul Chowdhury has apparently been missing
since mid-July. This was brought to my attention when it became clear
that he was about to miss the deadline for submitting a final evaluation
for the Google Summer-of-Code student who had been working on (and has
successfully completed) scriptability support in Screen, via the Lua
scripting language.

He had told the student, on July 16th, that he was going to be traveling
for a few days. The student has been unable to reach him since that
time, up until today. In checking logs, I see that there have been no
mailing list activity, code checkins, or IRC activity from him since
that time. I'm becoming concerned that something may have happened to
him during his travels. I hope that if anyone has information on what
may have happened to him, they will make it known. I do have him as a
"friend" on FaceBook, and posted a query on his profile. He was never
very active there, but I'm hoping someone who may know what has happened
will see it and respond.

In the meantime, it looks like Screen is again in need of a
co-maintainer. I believe that I bit off more than I could chew when I
accepted that responsibility previously, even though I did have exactly
the level of involvement that I had said I would... but Screen honestly
needs someone who can devote more time to it than I can.
