YouTubers Help Find Body of Pennsylvania Man Who Has Been Missing for Nearly 20 Years

A YouTube group reportedly helped find the body of a Pennsylvania man who had been missing for nearly 20 years.

“It’s my brother,” the victim’s brother, Stephen Amabile, told The Philadelphia Inquirer when remains were found in a car in a body of water on Saturday. “They found him.”

The victim’s brother says a family member contacted a group called Adventures with Purpose leading up to Saturday’s discovery.

Adventures With Purpose has a YouTube channel with over 2 million subscribers and is known for their ability to solve missing persons in waters. They reportedly discovered a car Saturday night in Pennsylvania’s Darby’s Creek, believed to belong to James Amabile.

“I’ve gotten used to expecting nothing, and I’ve tweaked a lot of things,” Stephen Amabile told The Philadelphia Inquirer. “But it didn’t take long for them to find out there was an SUV there.”

James Amabile first disappeared on December 4, 2003. His brother described him as a “family man, devoted to his two daughters,” according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

James was reportedly on his way to pick up his daughters from the babysitter when he called and told her he was late, but was never heard from or seen again. Stephen Amabile thinks his brother went into diabetic shock before he drove his car into the water.

The license plate on the vehicle matched the ‘missing person from December 2003’, according to the police. The Delaware County Medical Examiner’s Office will continue to examine the remains.
