"SS Central America" Salvor Located

The U.S. Marshals Service have tracked down Tommy Thompson, 62,  for whom a federal civil arrest warrant was issued for him in 2012 after he failed to show up to a key court hearing. He was found at a hotel in Palm Beach County, Florida. In 1987, the treasure hunter had found an 1857 shipwreck off South Carolina containing as much as 10 tons of gold, then allegedly failed to pay off his investors and disappeared ('Fugitive treasure hunter who found 'Ship of Gold' nabbed after two years on lam', FoxNews January 28, 2015). The wreck site is being re-examined by salvage teams with more modern equipment.
