BEND, Ore. - Ethan Kazmerzak. Carey Mae Parker. Tammy Goff. The names may not ring a bell for many people. But for Doug Bishop, their pictures and their families will forever remain etched in his memory.

Bishop, 38, is the lead diver and investigator with Adventures with Purpose — a group of volunteer divers who travel across the country and look for clues underwater in hopes of cracking missing persons’ cold cases.

Using sonar equipment, the Bend, Oregon-based group said they have solved 22 cases since formally launching two years ago. The 10-member group not only consists of divers but also production crewmembers who film every search and rescue, posting videos on YouTube and other social media pages.
