SUNRISE (CBSMiami) – For 36 years, the mystery of what happened to Dana Null, 15, and Harry Wade Atchison, 19, lay at the bottom of a dark, murky South Florida canal. Those missing persons reports reveal that after arriving at Atchison’s home, the couple apparently got into an argument and drove off in Atchison’s 1969 orange Dodge Coronet, never to be seen again. However, they weren’t able to recover all of the vehicle. “The back part of the car is just buried so deep,” said BSO Spokesperson Veda Coleman-Wright. “We’re talking 36 years ago so I’m not sure how much of that we’ll be able to recover.” The remains of the car were laid out on a Westway Tow Truck located just North of State Road 84 between 136th Avenue and Markham Park. The car was barely even recognizable as a vehicle when it was pulled out. “At least now they do have some of those answers,” said Coleman-Wright. “They don’t have to go another hour, another day, another year wondering what happened.” Advocates for families of missing persons arrived at the scene on Thursday to learn more about the case.

She started an organization called Guardians for the Missing to help other families suffering through a similar tragedy. “He was missing for 6 months,” she said. “And it was horrible for the family just for 6 months.
