Recommended Posts

The skeletal remains of a man found in Florida have been revealed to be those of William Moldt, who had been missing for more than 20 years.

The mystery of where 40-year-old Moldt disappeared to on 8 November 1997 had left cops stumped, however, it was reportedly solved after someone spotted a sunken car in a pond on Google Earth and called in the police to investigate.

His remains were found inside the submerged vehicle last month in a pond in Wellington, near Palm Beach, after the manager of The Grand Isles housing development spotted them on Google Earth, Newsweek reports.

Did they not notice the car before filling it up? I can not find info on when it was filled in.

The water was already in it.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office told the BBC that Mr Moldt is presumed to have lost control of his vehicle and drove into the pond.

The force said that, during the initial investigation into his disappearance, there was "no evidence of that occurring" until recently, when a shift in the water made the car visible

It said it was a building site, bit confusing.

It was a retention pond. 

He must of gone in not long after it was filled as it was a building site in 1997. He went missing in 1997. 

I can not find when they filled the retention pond with water, but he went missing in November.
