We found 57-year-old Antonio Amaro-Lopez in his car underwater, solving a 3-day-old missing person case in Portland, Oregon after you, the viewers reached out and put us in touch with Antonio's family to help bring him home after he lost control of his car on February 14th, careening off the I-205 Glenn Jackson Bridge into the Columbia River.
Antonio had been missing for 3-days before we arrived on Feb 17th to offer our services to the family and the Multnomah County Sheriffs Office River Patrol.

Doug and I met up at 8am, and up to the I-205 bridge shortly before 9am where we also met up with Scott.
After identifying an area of interest to search for Antonio and his missing car, the MCSO asked that we stay out of the area.
Waiting for them to pull back to search our area of interest, we slid into the area around 12:30pm and quickly identified a vehicle underwater, marking it with a grappling hook.
Notifying the Sheriff of the location of the vehicle, we were asked to remove the marker and move out of the area.
The MCSO Dive Team arrived on the scene a few hours later, and after unsuccessful attempts to locate the vehicle, asked if we could help with locating the vehicle a second time.
Within a few minutes, the vehicle was located and we placed the grappling hook back on the vehicle.
The MCSO Dive Team was then able to dive on the car underwater and confirm that there was a body inside.
Shortly after dark, Antonio Lopez was recovered and brought onboard the MCSO Dive Boat.
We are honored and humbled to have been there for the Lopez family, side by side on the water and witnessing their candlelight vigil onshore at the boat ramp upon our return at the end of the evening.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Lopez family.

  • As a diver and someone who loves water I have become addicted to your channel I can't stop watching. I grew up in Oregon and lived in the NW most of my life. The last 5 years I have lived in AZ and have become watersick (homesick for water). I am living vicariously through you guys thanks for sharing and thanks for the special and important work you guys do. I am incredibly jealous of the work and ability to dive like you guys do I wish I had gotten involved with something like this.

  • I just want to say you handled that scene with the sheriff telling you to get out in a very professional way. I am a retired paramedic of 25 yrs, a police and 911 dispatcher. I have seen a lot. I want to say that I respect your team in the way that you show the story but you leave out the actual showing of the body on the video. It shows you first and foremost have respect for the families. God Bless you all.

  • Unusually, if local law enforcement kick AWP out of the location of the missing person case, they don't apologize for their meanness or harshness toward AWP. This is the first time where the authorities allow AWP place a marker for the divers of Mr. Lopez's car, plus the sheriff apologized to AWP for their harshness to them. Great work to AWP & the authorities there in Portland, Oregon to bring Antonio back home & give his family closure. After all, team work makes the dream work.

  • I am not trying to start a police/no police debate. However, how is it these guys can show up and immediately find multiple people throughout all of these scenes? And yet police don’t? I have heard some of them say their budget doesn’t provide for it. Well, this small inflatable and basic sonar setup are very inexpensive today, compared to large setups. If these departments can afford tank like vehicles, guns and gear that is military grade and level, THEY CAN SURE AS HELL AFFORD THE GEAR TO CONDUCT THESE SEARCHES! In this this case, they had the gear. But police let egos prevent them from helping. To me it comes down to police in many of the cases being inconsistent, not putting in the effort they could and some of them being lazy and flat out arrogant! Pisses me off honestly...

Not having you help them was ridiculous, but I can see how an upper-level bureaucrat would pressure them to be the ones to get results, get some good publicity. Not saying wrong or right, fair or no. Just a thought. They’re under pressure, too

  • Cops don’t know them. The last thing they need is a bunch of amateurs getting in the way of their search, possibly having an accident and requiring rescue themselves. Try looking at it from the police point of view. This group is making USworlds videos. For all they know, they could be like Logan Paul and just doing what they can do for views. It isn’t about pride. Once the police realized Adventure was a serious and professional, they changed their tune.

  • Don't be so hard on these officers. They don't have to know you or believe you who you are. You would be surprised how many crazy people running out there hitting their nose into stuff they shouldn't. And lets give credit where it's due, they swallowed their pride, went back for asking help and at the end their boss even apologized. They are not bad people, they just work in a job where usually assuming the worst is the best way to save your ass.

  • my question is, if the witnesses saw this car go off the road and fall into the water. Why did they then not call the police.

    JayyyyyyyyxxJayyyyyyyyxx6 days ago
    • They probably did call the police. But it was during a snow storm with icy conditions. Even if they came right away they are essentially racing the clock. In cold water like that where you’re not trapped in a car and just floating at the surface you’d have maybe 30mins before you’re dead. And with where this incident took place they’d need specialized equipment just to get to him. By the time they get that special equipment it’s well past the 30min mark and the victim is dead. So there’s no point in sending in more ppl during a bad snow storm. That’s just potentially going to create more victims and as we know police/fire departments won’t send any of their ppl out into dangerous weather related situations if they don’t have to. Recovery of a body in those conditions falls under that unfortunately. 😕
