After years of missing, William Moldt's body was finally recovered
Remains found in a pond in Florida have been identified as William Moldt who went missing more than 20 years ago.
The skeletal remains at the age of 40 were found last month in a submerged vehicle in a pond in Wellington near Palm Beach.

According to the Sheriff & # 39; s Office in Palm Beach County, Moldt was reported missing in November 1997, but the case had turned cold.
Moldt's body was still found in his car, which was submerged in the pond near the residential project.
At the time of Moldt's disappearance, The Grand Isles residential area was still under construction.
His body was found in an underwater car that was only discovered after a property manager saw something strange on Google Earth and decided to warn the authorities
Moldt's body was found in a car that had been immersed in a lake in 1997 and was essentially hidden invisibly
Delegates who responded to the scene noted that the vehicle was heavily calcified, indicating that it had been in the water for quite some time.
The police only dragged the car out of the pond to discover the skeletal remains inside.
The vehicle and the remains were handed over to the Palm Beach County medical examination office for processing.
