DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Member of a police dive team have discovered a stolen vehicle apparently submerged in a Des Moines lake for 16 years.

The Metro Area Dive Team was practicing Wednesday at Easter Lake when they found the submerged Jeep.

Officer David Chiodo says the vehicle clearly had been in the lake a long time. It was covered in grime and had lots of fishing lines and sinkers attached to it.

Police traced the vehicle to Carlisle, where a 1998 police report showed the vehicle had been stolen.

Police think it likely had been in the lake since then.
