Today AWP found a Green 2012 Kia Soul driven by 59-year-old Jan Shupe who was last seen April 02, 2021, in Lakeland, Florida.
We began our search yesterday, 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.
Today Adam Brown from Adam Brown Adventures joined our search efforts where we began our morning on the Northside of Mudd Lake off of Hwy 33.
With no success, AWP and the other 3 teams split up to search additional boat ramps in the area with no success.
Working with the last known siting 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 residence began moving in after July 2021, AWP chose to sonar the pond to the north of Victoria Road.
A vehicle as located in 6 1/2 feet of water, 50′ from shore.
No dive 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 approximately 1:10 PM, through the efforts of all organizations working together, the vehicle in question was removed, confirming human remains inside.
A full autopsy will need to be conducted before confirmation can be made that Jan has been brought home.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Jan’s family during this difficult time.
We will have a full edit of our search and recovery efforts available in the next few weeks.
Hug the ones you love for you never know when it might be the last time you see them.
We are humbled by the opportunity all of you have given us to help in the search for answers as to what happened to Jan.
