Skeletal remains of man missing almost 22 years found in submerged auto

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

When police removed the vehicle from the pond, they discovered the skeletal remains of William Earl Moldt, who was reported missing on November 8, 1997, after leaving a nightclub while intoxicated when he was 40 years old.

An anomaly spotted on Google Earth turned out to be a submerged auto in a pond.

In 2015, the Daily Mail reported a MI man who'd been missing since 2006 was found after someone spotted his vehicle in a pond where it had been visible on Google Maps for years.

According to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, Moldt left a nightclub alone around 11 the night before he was reported missing. Finally, on August 28, deputies got the call from Fay and lifted the vehicle from the pond in the gated, single-family Grand Isles development in Wellington, where Fay had moved 14 months before from Sunrise.

A previous resident of the neighbourhood of Grand Isles in Wellington, Florida, about 30 kilometres west of Lantana, was looking at the area on Google Earth when he zoomed into a pond and saw what looked like a vehicle.

On 28 August this year - 22 years on - police were called to reports of a vehicle found in a pond in Moon Bay Circle, Wellington.

These crashes occur most often during clear days on dry, rural roads, a South Florida Sun-Sentinel analysis shows. Pulling the vehicle from the water, they found it heavily calcified with the body of Mr Moldt inside.

Someone who lives in the neighborhood used a personal drone to take a closer look. The neighbour asked Fay whether he knew about it.

Though a missing person investigation was launched by police on November 7 of that year, the case went cold after no one could find him.

The Saturn and the skeletal remains were towed to the Palm Beach County medical examiner's office for processing. One week later the remains were positively identified as belonging to Mr Moldt.

"You can't determine what happened that many years ago, what transpired", police spokeswoman Barbera said.

The vehicle had been driven into a man-made lake on a housing estate, which was under construction at the time he vanished.

"He also was not a frequent drinker but did have several drinks at the bar", the report reads.
