Car with body of man missing 9 years visible on Google Maps

The body of Davie Lee Niles, a man disappeared on October 11, 2006 after he was seen leaving Jake's Bar in Byron Township, Michigan, has been found inside a sunken car - which has been visible on Google Maps for years.

When he disappeared in 2006 was diagnosed with cancer and depression. His family lost hope in finding him and in 2011 they published an obituary for the 72-year-old man. But while decorating a tree for Christmas outside of Cook Funeral Home in Byron Center, Brian Houseman was on a lift when he spotted a car submerged in a pond that had been visible at the bottom of a pond for years on Google Maps.
