Yacht crew find clue to missing person case

ADVERTISEMENT

Yacht crew on S/Y Fidelis, a 183-foot Perini Navi, found a submerged car while inspecting the yacht’s submerged anchor in Port Nelson in New Zealand in April. Retrieval of the sunken car helped solve the disappearance of Leo Lipp-Neighbours who went missing in 2010 in Nelson.

According to local news sources, John Baudier of Yacht Services New Zealand worked with the yacht during its stay and reported that the crew had put down an anchor to prepare for windy weather. He said crew members dived to place the anchor about 65 feet away from the yacht. When retrieving the anchor later, divers in the water saw a car tire.

Baudier told the news that he called Port Nelson to report a potential hazard in the water and that led to an investigation that confirmed the car is that of Lipp-Neighbours.
