    I missed it, as well. Went back and did a general web search. It appears he was found in June 2017.

    The article I found also stated that he just turned 50. No idea which article is correct.

    Huh. That's odd. The article is dated yesterday, but the diver clearly died in 2017 based on a google search.

    Innocent website error or repurposing old content to meet a deadline?

    November 17, 2019 was yesterday. I guess I am repeating someone else's mistake. I left a rude comment on that page.

    No worries, as far as I am concerned. I took it the same way you did, being recent.
