One of the legend’s band members is still missing…

Brian Wilson is appealing for information on the whereabouts of one of his band members who was holidaying in THAILAND when the Asian tsunami struck on December 26.

Markus Sandlund, a cellist from Stockholm Strings & Horns, appears on Brian Wilson’s lost classic recreation ‘Smile’, which was released last year. He has not been heard from since shortly before the disaster hit on Boxing Day.

"I have been devastated since I heard the news that Markus is missing in Thailand," said Brian Wilson. "We have sent an agent to see what we can find out, but as of today (January 4) we have been unable to locate Markus in the area. If there is anyone out there who might know Markus' whereabouts please contact

"My prayers go out to all of the victims and their families and I would ask you to say a prayer for Markus' safe return," he added.

Sandlund was celebrating Christmas on the island with his girlfriend Sofi. After being swept away during the disaster, she was later rescued and is recovering in hospital in Sweden, reports Billboard.
