CASE DETAILS
We began our search on February 1st, 2022, being assisted by Jeremy Sides from Exploring with Nug, and Brittian Lockhart from Depths of History starting our day at 9:00.

The first location searched was a pond south of Shepherd Road working from license plate reader information keeping Jan close to her home with no success.

We then moved our search north to a few boat ramps around the Southgate Publix Shopping Complex where Jan was last seen shopping on CCTV, leaving behind her wallet and stimulus money.

Moving back south on Florida Ave we searched Chrystal Lake where we found 2 pickup trucks 10′ underwater, 45′ from shore, but they were not our target vehicle in question.

Reporting to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, Deputies on-scene shared new clues in the case about Jan being involved in an accident the evening of April 2nd approximately 30 minutes after leaving the Southgate Publix when she was last seen on CCTV video.

Working with the last known sighting at the accident location of Malcum and Socrum Loop Road, Jared identified a new subdivision to the North with newly dug retention ponds.

Confirming with local homeowners that residents began moving in after July 2021, AWP chose to sonar the pond to the north of Victoria Road.

A vehicle was located in 6 1/2 feet of water, 50′ from shore.

No diving gear was required for Josh Cantu to put on a mask, and freedive the vehicle confirming a 2012 Moss Green Kia Soul with Florida license plate JLQA90.

With a Deputy of the Polk County Sheriff Dive Team already en route at 10:10 AM to return gear leftover at Chrystal Lake from the evening before, the Deputy was the reporting party to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.

Over the next several hours, additional Polk County Sheriff Dive Deputies, Investigators, Forensics, etc. arrived on the scene, and at approximately 1:10 PM, through the efforts of all organizations working together, the vehicle in question was removed, confirming human remains inside.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jan’s family during this difficult time.

Hug the ones you love for you never know when it might be the last time you see them.

  1. My heart breaks for Jan, she had the worst day ever with things going wrong, one after the other, and ending in this tragedy. Please everyone, don't let your older relatives drive when you know they can't see well and are dealing with these same dementia struggles, I know firsthand how hard it is when relatives are stubborn and insist on their complete independance, but you have to be the bad guy sometimes and be even more stubborn! Get on their cases and take them to Dr. appointments and even hide their keys if need be. Also go watch "how to escape from your car" on this same channel.

  2. Hi my name is Brenda and I just watch your video about the 16 year old that was just found in Lake Tahoe you guys did a great job and it was really sad what happened to the little girl she didn't deserve to die that way and I feel bad that her family isn't going to see her again and I hope they find out what happened to her and the family finds closure.

  3. Honestly, In comparison to some of your other videos the police actually did a great job here and cooperated nicely with you guys.Great job πŸ‘ I wish the police was always as welcoming for you help as in this video.

  4. it's sad thinking how she was depressed and must've probably felt so helpless that she thought there's no one she can turn to yet in reality there are a lot of people who are working hard together just to find her.

  5. I hope you guys now reach out to law enforcement automatically because if those two cars hadn't been found and called in the first day, you might never have gotten speaking to police to obtain the info about the accident she had, and never even thought of looking here.

  6. These guys have a mind of steel. I can't imagine finding a deceased person almost everytime and then speaking to their loved ones.

    May the master of the universe or anything with a higher power always guide you.

  7. Thank you Doug your words are very moving the family appreciate everything you've done we all do thank you again so muchπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™‹πŸΌπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

  8. Well I sure appreciate what Doug is saying that the audience gets to see more sonar from the Hummingbird Well that is fantastic we enjoy watching the sonar… Thanks Doug thank you so so much good luck to all of youπŸ€πŸ™πŸΌπŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ™‹πŸΌ
