FLORIDA — William Moldt had been missing for over 20 years. He was discovered inside of a submerged car in a body of water in Wellington, FL recently.

One person was roaming a former neighborhood on Google Earth when they came across what looked like a car in a body of water submerged. Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Teri Barbera said on Thursday that a previous resident of the Grand Isles neighborhood in Wellington, Florida, was checking the neighborhood on Google Earth when he zoomed into the water and saw what looked like a car.

The former resident contacted a current homeowner, who used a drone to confirm it was a white car on the edge of the pond behind his house. There was a sedan in the water with skeletal remains inside. Also, the sedan was heavily calcified according to reports.

According to The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, they say Moldt went to a nightclub in November 1997. He left the club around midnight but did not seem to be drunk. He had called his girlfriend from the club saying he would return to their Lantana home soon, but he never made it.

The body of water where Moldt was found was already there as the neighborhood was under construction at the time of his disappearance.
