According to the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s office, a fisherman discovered the vehicle near a Clear Lake boat ramp, submerged in about nine feet of water. A dive team brought the vehicle to shore.
All the windows were closed, the vehicle was unoccupied and it was likely underwater for several years according to investigators. The sheriff’s office says there’s no indication the vehicle is linked to foul play or ongoing investigations in the area.
Authorities aren’t sharing the exact type of vehicle that was submerged in Clear Lake, but have indicated it is a model from the 1980s.
