Google Earth leads to remains of missing Florida man in lake

The body of a man who went missing in 1997 was recovered from a retention pond in Wellington last month

A South Florida man missing for 22 years has been found dead in a retention pond.

The former resident contacted a current homeowner, who used a drone to confirm it was a white vehicle on the edge of the pond behind his house, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's office said.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said a previous resident was doing a Google Earth search in the area and notice what appeared to be a auto in a pond behind a residence. The former resident told a current resident, who flew a drone above the site and immediately called authorities when he confirmed that the vehicle was there.

Inside, were skeletal remains identified Tuesday as William Earl Moldt.

On the night of his disappearance, Mr Moldt left the club at about 23:00 local time (03:00 GMT), a report by the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System said.

A property surveyor looking at Google Earth spotted the auto on August 28 this year.

After being called out to the scene, cops determined the vehicle had likely been there for a long time due to the condition it was in.

An image of the submerged vehicle is still available to view on Google Earth.

Upon hauling it out the water, the remains were discovered and handed to the medical examiner's office to process them and get an identity. When the drone confirmed that the auto was there, Fay called the sheriff's office, according to the report. Skeletal remains pulled from the auto were identified by a coroner as Moldt.

When officers arrived at the scene, they confirmed a vehicle was in the pond.

Moldt could have been found 10 years ago.

He had called his girlfriend at around 9.30pm to tell her he would be home soon, but had not been heard from since.

"All we know is that he went missing off the face of the Earth, and now he's been discovered".

He reportedly did not appear intoxicated at the time and left alone in his vehicle according to WPTV.
