After Terra and Luna crashed to $0, a family of three went missing in South Korea, including their 10-year-old daughter.

The police recovered a car suspected of belonging to the missing family of three from the waters at the island of Wando, South Jeolla. The corpse of an adult man was in the driver’s seat, while two female corpses were in the backseat, reported leading Korean publication Korea JoongAng Daily.

Reportedly, the family’s Audi plunged 32 feet underwater. The police used a loaded 25-ton cargo equipped with a crane to recover the car from underwater. As per police reports, the car’s trunk was smashed, presumably after an impact. The police confirmed that they recovered the vehicle’s suitcases packed with clothing and other personal items. The recovered corpses were sent to the National Forensic Service for an autopsy.

It is reported that the man ran a computer shop but had closed his business last year. Moreover, the reason for the closure of his business is yet to be uncovered.

The 10-year-old girl’s parents informed the school that they were taking their daughter on a month-long trip to Jeju from May 19 to June 15. The school filed a missing complaint to the police on June 22 after the girl failed to return to school. School authorities said in the complaint that the girl’s parents were unreachable on the phone.

The police found CCTV images of the family on May 30 at a vacation rental unit near Wando’s Myeongsasimni Beach. The footage shows an unconscious little girl believed to be their daughter being carried by her mother. The father is seen walking next to them, holding a white plastic bag exiting the venue, reported Korea JoongAng Daily.

CCTV cameras on the road captured their Audi heading towards the Songgok Harbor minutes after leaving their accommodation. The police seized the father’s cellphone signals last May 31, 4:00 AM, at the exact Songgok Harbor location.

The police are considering the possibility that the family’s car might have crashed into the sea.

However, Korea JoongAng Daily reported that the police took a warrant from the court to search the family’s browsing history. The Korean daily quoted an official on anonymity stating that the parents regularly searched for the “Luna coin.” The official further noted that the browsing history contained “sleeping pills” and “ways to make an extreme choice.”

Moreover, It is unknown whether the family had invested money in TerraUST or Luna. The Korean daily also reported that the family had stayed at an upscale and expensive accommodation. Also, they quoted the housing owner, saying that the family paid their bills for six nights.

The police are investigating whether the family took the extreme step or was it a road crash.
