A missing persons case from 1997 has been solved thanks to Google Maps.

While looking at satellite imagery provided in the app, a Google user discovered an image of a car in a pond in Wellington, Florida. When the car was excavated, the skeletal remains of a person were found inside.

Back on Nov. 7, 1997, 40-year-old William Moldt of Florida was reported missing. Nearly 22 years ago, Moldt called his girlfriend to let her know he was on his way home from a nightclub. He was never seen or heard from again.
