Here's a thought, albeit pretty random, though I figured I'd throw it out there since it seems we're still stuck.
I was going back through the articles, and the one that jumped out to me with regard to code was Cryptic Deaths. In it, "G. Reaper" refers to the lines of code he left in a book at the site of the Somerton Man incident, and that code (if that's indeed what it was) has never been sufficiently solved despite attempts by codebreakers, government folk, etc.
G. Reaper notes that the code is "unsolvable, and that you'll go mad trying" if you attempt to crack it, so I started thinking about codes that are considered uncrackable, of which the most obvious is the one-time pad method of coding, which has historically been the hallmark of most number stations, which are a big area of personal interest to me, and one of the formats used by the NSA in creating one-time pads is code-named DIANA. I can't think that's a coincidence, since it shows up in the word search, but I don't know what the connection could be...
Because taking it back to basics, the problem is called "Word Search". The description is "Find the words in the list on the right." So literally speaking, search for the words in the list (just) on the right.
It doesn't say search just the letter grid.
You can search for VRIL and of course find it on the luggage ticket...
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
