On its social media, the diving group Adventures with Purpose has announced that another case has been solved. On 1 April, US divers found the remains of a man, which they identified as Dedrick Smith. The man went missing in the fall of 2006, near Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

We found Dedrick Smith underwater who went missing 16 years ago. 1 April 2022. The Adventures with Purpose group has launched a search for 26-year-old Dedrick Smith, who was last seen in Winston-Salem on October 3, 2006. Later that afternoon, the Adventures With Purpose team located Dedrick’s car at a depth of just 14 feet (4.2 m). reads an official statement from the AWP group.

The next morning, April 2, Adventures with Purpose members, along with local law enforcement, returned to the scene. They again dived into the wreckage of a car, the interior of which contained the remains of a man missing since 2006.

Unexplained disappearance

Dedrick Smith was last seen at his girlfriend’s house. The woman had gone out for food in the middle of the night and when she returned, he was gone. The man changed his shirt and left his girlfriend’s house on Booker Street. He then got into his light blue and turquoise 1993 Pontiac Grand Am and drove off. Since then, all trace of him has disappeared. Until now.

Prior to his disappearance, Smith had maintained daily contact with relatives. He had promised his mother he would visit her on October 4, but no family or friends have had any contact with him since his disappearance. Although there were reported sightings in the area after his disappearance, none have been confirmed. His car, which contained some extra clothes, has also never been found.

We are honoured to be able to help families and it is thanks to you, our supporters, that this is possible wrote AWP.

Once again, thanks to the activities of the Adventure with Purpose diving group, the unexplained disappearance of. Another family received sad but certain information about the fate of their loved one.

In the next few weeks, there will be an episode dedicated to our search for Dedrick and this case, as well as an investigative episode of our podcast. A full autopsy will need to be conducted before we can confirm that we have brought Dedrick home. AWP’s move would not be possible without your support, which helps us travel the US and offer our services for FREE to families searching for their missing loved ones… Thank you! concluded their AWP statement
