John, Anne and Panama

The story of John Darwin, the "missing assumed dead" canoeist's miraculous reappearance after five years has been all over the press for the last few days. Eyebrows were raised when a photo of him with his wife apparently taken in Panama last year emerged.

Here's how it happened:

The woman who uncovered the picture of missing John Darwin with his wife found it with a simple search on Google.
She typed in the words John, Anne and Panama, clicked on images and up it popped - complete with date.
The single mum, who does not want to be named, said: "I'd like to nominate them for 'World's Dumbest' awards.
"Not only were they photographed but the date was actually on the picture. It was just too good to be true."
The photo of John and Anne was taken in July 2006 for a "Move to Panama" website. It has now been removed.

This is how the new world is going to work.
