This interesting story surrounds the disappearance of a man named Willian Earl Moldt, who was last seen leaving a nightclub after a super fun night in 1997.
After two decades, his car was found immersed in a pond in Florida by a man who just happened to be nosing his way around the Google earth.
How Did The Former Resident Discover The Car
This snoopy man is a former resident of the Wellington community, Green Isles, in Florida.
He viewed the area through satellite images on Google Earth when he saw something that looked like a yellow car submerged in a pond.
That is how he ended up becoming the hero who discovered the remains of Willian Earl Moldt. It is still a conundrum whether the real hero is the wanderer or the technology. However, he ended up getting credit for it.
The news immediately attracted all the news broadcasters to the area of the accident like a magnet.
Florida News Outlet says that the remains of Mr. William were found inside his car, a 1994 Saturn SL, that also went missing with its owner.
Now immediately, the question that comes to mind is why the police were unable to find the car and its owner when a random guy can discover it while sitting at home, poking his nose through Google Maps for no particular reason?
Is his view sharper than that of the police? Well, not exactly his, but Google Earth’s.
The vehicle was not found to be very far away from the edge but enough to not be seen by a naked eye.
On the other hand, the former resident was surveying the view from a top angle, which made him grab a slight look at the yellow shade of the car.
The Background Story
The next question that makes us grieve is his family and how devastating it would have been for them to know that their son just vanished in thin air.
