    Still missing. No leads apparently.

    Here's the fb page that is a set up to help find him. His wife posts there too regarding the case.

    Wow after 8 months!

    On the fb page they say (in comments) the water level was too high and for some reason the water level went down recently and that's why the jeep was spotted.

    Vehicle was covered in moss. John was not in it.

    I hope they will search the canal now thoroughly. Very likely John's in there too.

    No new news I could find. Bumping for John.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.
