Remains of missing man found after 22 yrs, thanks to GoogleEarth

Florida: Remains of a missing man were finally found after 22 years when a man zoomed in on his former Florida neighborhood with Google satellite images. On doing that he noticed a car submerged in a lake. He contacted a current homeowner, who used a drone to confirm it was a white car on the edge of the pond behind his house.

As reported by the Guardian, the man called Palm Beach county sheriff’s office on 28 August, whose deputies later arrived to find the white sedan’s exterior “heavily calcified”. They found the skeletal remains inside the car.

According to the sheriff’s office, the remains were identified as that of William Moldt, who went missing in 1997 at the age of 40.

According to The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, Moldt went to a nightclub in November 1997. He had called his girlfriend from the club saying he would return to their Lantana home soon.
