SUV Found in Thompson Lake

An Amarillo fisherman made one heck of a find out at Thompson Park on April 6.

The fisherman noticed an antenna popping out of water, and called police.

A dive team arrived to find a vehicle at the bottom of the lake.

Reports show the car is not stolen, and nobody was inside.

Officials say it is a newer car, but algae growth leads them to believe it's been in the lake for a couple months, but believe no injuries are involved with the car.

Corporal Bob West from the Amarillo Police Department says, " we're not in a hurry, we're not going to be saving anyone right now, its just a recovery mode."

 Police are continuing to investigate the vehicle.
