The moment I heard that there were other pics with the UFO, I immediately thought it must be for the views for those sweet sweet Google Maps points lol. Still super glad to hear that it comes from someone with quite an interesting life story!

Sruthi this is interesting - Thanks for investigating stories about people that I never knew were happening. I was uncomfortable in places because I didn't feel good about the politics of what was going on- but this story shows that you buried your own reactions and followed the story in depth to find out who the skip tracer is and what Maria Espinosa and her organisation does. This is really dry reporting and done well. It's not as funny or feelgood as some of the other stuff I've seen you do- but still really interesting and good, solid reporting. Thanks
