For three days, police, search dogs, a helicopter, and hundreds of volunteers combed heavily wooded areas and fields around DeVenecia's Fitchburg home to no avail. Concerned for his safety as the search dragged on, Fitchburg police issued a news alert to all residents to be on the lookout for the missing man.
It took David Lesh about 20 minutes to find DeVenecia with a drone.

A rumour and purple tent was all it took for GeekWire’s Jacob Dement to claim a secret Amazon drone testing site.
There I was, air conditioner blasting in my Car2Go as I sat in front of a red gate on a gravel road in rural Snoqualmie, Wash. Multiple locals told me this was what I had come looking for: the entrance to Amazon’s secret drone testing site.
I wasn’t lucky enough to show up on a day when Amazon’s prototype delivery drone was being tested. But then I pulled up Google Maps to try to get a sense of where exactly I was.
And that’s when I saw it.

I am finally letting the cat out of the bag.
For more than a year now, I have been telling potential clients who call me about filing a Section 333 Grant of Exemption with the FAA about a wonderful “workaround” if they don’t have a pilot’s license and don’t want to get one.

Forget getting the latest, greatest cell phone. The next indispensable tech tool may be a drone of your own. And daily life may never be the same.
"I see a time when every home will have a drone. You're going to use a drone to do rooftop inspections. You're going to be able to send a drone to Home Depot to get a screw driver," said Parimal Kopadekar, manager of NASA's Safe Autonomous System Operations Project at Ames Research Center in Mountain View, Calif.
And this won't happen in some long-distant future. "This is in five or 10 years," Kopadekar said Wednesday.
