Did online maps help Kim family get lost?

Those of us in the Northwest and the Bay Area are captivated by the story of a San Francisco family on a road trip that ended up getting stuck in the snow on a back road in Oregon. James Kim, an editor at CNET, is still missing. His wife and two young children were found yesterday after over a week in the wilderness (she kept the kids alive by breast feeding.) Kim took off on snowshoes on Saturday, and an intense search is underway to find him. Meanwhile, some are speculating that Kim used an online mapping service to take Bear Camp Road, which is a shortcut during the summer but treacherous during the winter months. Google Maps shows the road as a preferred route, while Yahoo offers a highway as the suggested route. Fascinating.
