Body found in submerged vehicle near Los Banos
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Authorities in the North Valley have discovered a body inside a S.U.V. that sank in a remote area of Merced County nearly two years ago.
Dive teams recovered the vehicle on Friday near the Los Banos detention dam. The vehicle was reported missing in May 2010, but water levels did not dip to levels where the car could be seen until last week. When a dive team arrived to remove the vehicle, they discovered a body was still inside.
Investigators say the person's identity will not be available until an autopsy is performed.
