    is that a silver 2006 Volkswagen Jetta I see?

    Note the directionality of the lines from the ESE like a vehicle missed turning and drove straight on into the water.

    On Google Earth, go to:
    26*37’29.91″N
    80*13’39.14″W

    You can still see the car WITH the poor guy in it at the bottom of a small lake in Florida. He was missing for 22 years til they finally found him. I can’t imagine how they missed it in plain sight.

      Former poster…you are exactly correct. Ethan is inside his car, at the bottom of some nasty, murky body of water. It happens quite a bit. I hope somebody finds him soon.

        Start at where he was supposed to be and where he was supposed to be going, work the pits and streams between those two spots.

        Heck, the Cerro GOrdo cops couldn’t even figure out that the guy who went missing from Rock Falls could have been in the pit at the campground – even as obvious as that was.

          From my understanding from what ive read he was going home,and he was at alot of pubs. anywhere between Aredale and Hampton? How many bodies of water in between. I think they said his cell phone pinged at the intersection of 190th/olive.not familiar where that is exactly.
