May 2016 Stichting Missing in Action (MIA) received an email with a request if we can would like to search for the remains of a World War II soldier in Gronsveld (Netherlands). This soldier was brought to the surface during digging activities in the past but it was decided to rebury the remains instead of informing the police. Why reburial took place is unclear.
The exact location of the remains as well as the soldiers nationality are unknown. A possible location is given though, so this might help us a bit.
The request seems sincere and we think searching for the possible field grave is worthwhile. Due to factual war history in the area it could be that there is actually a field grave. We plan our search end of June 2016.
