Evan Cohen flies the coop

As most of us know, Air America has recently found itself in somewhat of a sticky situation thanks to the shady fund-raising practices of one of the organization's co-founders. Now it appears they have a missing persons case on their hands:

The former chairman of Air America Radio, Evan Montvel Cohen - who former colleagues said engineered transfers of more than $800,000 to the liberal radio network from a boys and girls club in the Bronx - is missing, according to a lawyer who is trying to have him served with legal papers.

At least two people have said Mr. Cohen is in Hawaii. He has not responded to a series of e-mail messages in recent weeks from The New York Sun asking him about his role.
