Family and friends of a missing aerospace executive reacted with anger and disappointment Wednesday to a police mix-up which nearly cost them information that could lead to him. The California Highway Patrol on Monday turned away a woman who tried to report that she had seen a car bearing Rowland Snowdon's license plate number, because the number did not appear in the CHP computer system as missing or stolen.
