Fishermen discover stolen car in lake

(WMC-TV) - People fishing near East Shore Drive and Holmes Road found a car in the lake Monday morning. 

The people who found it could see the top of the car poking above the water.  The same people were fishing at the lake Sunday and say the car was not there at that time.


At this time, we know the Memphis Fire Department did not find anyone in the car.

The immediate area around the car was searched, and they did not find a body in the water. Still, they have not ruled out the possibility of a body being in another part of the lake.

According to Lt. Wayne Cooke, the car was reported stolen Sunday night. They are looking into whether or not it has been used in a crime.
