Here is the info:

Thank you for contacting us through WWW.SOAR.EARTH.

Your query:
"How high resolution could you get of parts of Baja Peninsula, in this case looking for missing red truck (missing person) around certain dates. Desert country makes red stand out."

Reply:
We're sorry to hear about Mary Ann's disappearance.

Using a vehicle as the point of identification when looking for a lost person, especially when using satellite imagery is realistic way to approach this. Our imagery Skymap50 imagery is 50cm resolution which allows for the identification of objects the size of a vehicle or greater possible.

You can purchase historical and current satellite imagery directly from us & once purchased you can utilise the mapping utilities on Soar and share the image with anyone assisting you.

I suggest watching these two linked videos below so you can determine if the pricing is suitable for your requirements.

Do you need high resolution satellite photos? Here are two videos showing how you can purchase historical and current high resolution satellite photos from Soar.

If you would like to chat one on one, I can set up a Zoom call ASAP.

Thanks again for contacting us. I hope I have addressed your query and if you have any additional questions, please reply directly to this email.

Have an awesome day.

If that is legit, someone should setup a GoFundMe asap.

Are those two video links mentioned in the Soar reply available for us to better understand process and cost structures ?

Sounds like you bought into a sales pitch. But what dates/times/locations are the available imagery?

We see burned vehicles occasionally in the back country. Some you can't even tell what color they used to be.

Added from email below. I have used similar services - for example if this occurred at 5am, and flyover was at 8am, then you can potentially look for vehicle movement within radius of 3 hours x 45mph or such then review pics. In this case you would use an archived flyover if it had resolution capable of reviewing items which they suggest is sufficient. Usually it tells you where an object might be located or heading (what direction). Then a 2nd image can confirm direction and new location. (Archive images).

I hope this helps to get this in front of a fresh set of eyes, it just might produce a lead.

Some may wonder about the statement that she goes to train on Tuesdays. I am pretty sure that refers to a game played with dominos.

Tried it and got nothing!

I suggest a sweep of the area with some HiRes drones, using a SAR pattern approach.

Mary Ann Humfreville missing from Bahia de los Angeles for two months.
Kept her cash in cat box.

I understand journalists have to keep interest but the "cat box" seems unnecessary, as if it was partly her fault. If I was a resident I'd be ticked that the story paints an easy pickin's target in a place that is remote and unsecured. I know even a bullet in a foreigners pocket will send mexican police into seizures, apparently- at least that is what our governments tell us. In a country awash in guns no less. If I was permanent resident in Bola
I'd consider options.

Hopefully her demise was quick and her remains can be found.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Excellent movie. Something to consider.

I appreciated the Reader article, the details really fleshed out the story.
Sad, sounds like she is gone, and the motive was perhaps just robbery.
Perhaps the reason they killed her is she recognized the robbers, or simply meth heads that acted impulsively....
I don’t understand why they would take her, unless they had plans for kidnapping/ransom demand.

Would finding the truck really help in finding her? Or finding her killer(s)? I think it's a long shot.

IF....and that is a big if, Baja had good forensic investigators, finding the truck could be a big breakthrough. Probably they don’t have much of a DNA database to follow up on anything they could find. Since the odds of much happening with that the next move should be a healthy well advertised reward spread all over Baja.

a friend of mine in gonzaga bay had his place broken into 3 weeks ago. they stoled his honda generator and a polaris quad. they allso tried to still his boat with all his fishing gear in it that they took out of the garage but the tires were flat so they got bogged down in the soft sand and left it. the neighbor came out to see what the hell was going on and the bandito pointed a gun at him and told him to get back into his place or he would shoot him. the neighbor got on the radio and alerted the locals but by the time they arrived they were gone. it was 2 am in the mourning and they were driveing a black truck whith a red door. the military did not see them going north so they presumed they went towards highway 1.
