We FOUND Ethan Kazmerzak’s Car Underwater (Live Update)


We returned to Hampton, Iowa yesterday in search of Ethan Kazmerzak who has been missing for 7 years, after receiving new information. After just 30 minutes on the water with sonar, we identified a car underwater. Within the hour we dove on the car, identified the car and license plate is a match to Ethan's car.

Searching for Ethan Kazmerzak... $100,000 REWARD... (Cold Case Mystery)
The Sheriff and Local Police Chief were contacted, meeting us on the scene.
We can confirm that human remains have been identified inside of the car.
It will not be until after a coroner's report that we can confirm the remains found are Ethan's.
Ethan's parents were on the scene, but we respected their privacy and did not speak with them as this is a hard time for their family.
Location we found Ethan's car.
42.808763, -93.232556
Here is the Public Press Release by the Sheriff moments ago.
Recovery Efforts and Continued Investigation of Ethan Kazmerzak
Date: 10/27/2020
On 10/26/2020 a dive team located what is believed to be Ethan Kazmerzak’s 2006 Volkswagen.
The car was found submerged in water northwest of Hampton, Iowa.
This location is near one of the last locations Kazmerzak was seen on 9/15/2013.
This is a body of water that has been searched two times prior, looking for evidence of Kazmerzak and his vehicle.
Efforts are underway to make a recovery of the vehicle today.
We request that proper space, respect and consideration be shown to the Kazmerzak family and agencies involved in this continued investigation.

Information will follow as this investigation continues.

    Random thought or idea for someone who's an engineer/inventor/safety type. I wonder if there would be a simple design that would alert or set off either a red light or red light& siren system when someone crosses from road to water. Something that could be as simple as a solar powered becon light with a mini horn, that's attached to a breakaway cable. So if the cable becomes detached from the closed loop (by a vehicle passing thru it etc) then it turns on the emergency becon& 🚨/horn/etc. Best case scenario it would allow others to immediately help in the situation. Worst case, it would at least be a signal to let others know that something shitty happened& to report it. Obviously it would need to be tamper resistant for the average idiots who like to break shit. And not sensitive enough for weather or wildlife to disturb it. Those are just my thoughts. So if anyone turns that into a paycheck reality, remember to cut me a piece of the cake. Because I need a new set of teeth and they're not cheap. Lol.

You guys do an amazing job in helping families that have lost their loved ones heal in the most dignified way. I work as a hospice nurse and dealing or witnessing death a lot of times can be emotionally draining to those who’s not use to it but rewarding and fulfilling to those who are made for this kind of situation.

    Until you are in the ems services and understand how short funding is, and sometimes how hard it is to get the resources you need in position, you can't understand the expenses these guys have... yes from the outside in, it looks like they just drive and dive... but that is expensive and if just one cold case was solved, and they helped one of these families with closure, it is worth everything to that family...and is priceless. Any money they receive for doing so, is well earned! Don't like it? Go solve them yourself! Then you can decided if you take the reward or what happens to it..but I see them using reward monies to help even more people find closure for their loved ones....

    Hi. My name is Nicole van vleet. I’m 29 yrs old. My father went missing about two months ago in Alaska. His boat was found in the lake going around with no one on it. He has never been seen since. It has been more than devastating to me and my family. Other than bringing closure. Being able to get a death certificate would stop my step mom from losing his house and becoming homeless. You can google his name and see a local paper article about him going missing. His name was George van vleet. Your help would be appreciated more than words could explain. Please.

    Can you please do a story on Marc Fullerton? Marc Randall Fullerton Age 35, missing since June 2nd-3rd Gf says he went for a walk. But left everything behind. Including his shoes. Phone, wallet, car keys, and was only wearing shorts. The house is on a rural gravel road. Houses are very far apart. But he had no shoes on. FBI has not been called in. In the Missouri bootheel area, where he went missing, reminds me of the river bottoms. No way he went for a walk. Plus at night. With no shirt. Mosquitos would have tore him up. Address was Hayti, Missouri. But it's Braggidocio, Missouri. Because it's so close to the border of these two tiny towns. There's nothing in the area but farm land for miles. Dirt roads and big ditches that resemble canals. (They call them ditches there). He needs attention greatly. Please help.

    While I am sure that the authorities wish to find those who are missing, I feel like the police are always working to prove their theory. If their theory doesn't say the kid had an accident, they will do the minimum at best to search areas that don't fit their theory. If they have decided that he ran away from his life, they won't even search. Cops stopped doing the job of assisting the public a long time ago. They really want to prove themselves right. That's all they really care about anymore. Thanks for doing right by these families.

  • Pam Duncan
    Pam Duncan18 ditë më parë

    One of the hardest thing, I would imagine, in doing this type of search and recovery, especially over cases that have been open missing persons for some time, is that if a you succeed while you are bringing closure you are also bringing grief to a family who now knows that someone is not just missing but gone and your success may also be opening up a new era for them as the case does not always close but may move on to have another life as its own as the evidence found is mulled through. Anyone, when they under take to do something that they know they can do well and it turns out that they do do it well and they succeed in finding what they were looking for, there is the sense of a job well doe, and pride and even joy that a job well done can bring but at the same time that job well done now will bring reality crashing in on a family that may not have fully been ready for this answer. It very emotionally ripping to do something that should be something that gains a pat on the back while knowing that having done the job well you maybe pulling the rug out emotionally from a great many other people. Even in these cases of someone completely missing for so long, families will even if they never say it, have a small glimmer of hope in the back of their mind that that person may one day just show up again. And when its your actions to bring closure does bring that closure you cant help but to realized that that closure also slams the door on that on last little bit of hope they had. And that is terribly hard place to be and it can be very hard and traumatic for the person who does a job well that results in something that may hurt a family for a second or third time.
