I built an ROV to solve missing person cases

The author’s adventure into solving missing person cases began after reading a story on Hacker News in February 2019, sparking interest in the mysterious case of the Death Valley Germans. Inspired by the perseverance of one man solving the case, the author and their brother delved into discussions about solving missing person cases. An intriguing phone call from the brother in autumn 2020 marked the start of a thrilling journey that led to the resolution of two cold cases, unsolved for many years. The author’s narrative is based on their own notes, photos, and digital footprints, with facts checked as much as possible. Maps are intentionally omitted to challenge readers to deduce locations themselves.
