Elliott Yamin checked in with his Twitter followers (@elliottyamin) tonight as the ‘American Idol’ alum tries to find a way out of Chile after the country was hit with a devastating earthquake over the weekend. It appears Elliott will be heading home on Wednesday on a trip that saw him in three continents before nearly finding himself in the wrong place at the wrong time early Saturday. Yamin writes:
