People Are Sharing Pictures Of Deceased Loved Ones They've Found On Google Street View
Google Maps is an incredibly useful tool - it can basically help you find your way anywhere.
But it turns out the navigation tool can help you find things far more meaningful than just directions.
Leslie Yajaira, from North Carolina, USA, never got to say goodbye to her late granddad, who died a few years ago. However, while looking through his old farm on Google Street View, she spotted him sat out by the road.
My grandpa passed away a few years ago. We didn't get to say goodbye to him. Yesterday we found out google maps finally drove through his farm and as we were curious going through it, where the road ends, there is my grandpa, just sitting there. :sob: pic.twitter.com/CbwRTkCKrZ

Ms Yajaira shared her discovery on Twitter and it has since gone viral, receiving more than 424,000 likes - and it turns out she wasn't the only one who was able to trace a lost loved one with the tool.
Responding to the tweet, many others shared snaps of deceased relatives - and even pets - captured by one of the Google cars:
