It was not possible to return the car to the owner – he died

One of the local fishermen in Fishers, Indiana, noticed a strange object in the water of the Geist Reservoir. On check it turned out to be a Chevrolet Camaro, which was declared a theft 32 years ago.

The fisherman reported his find to the local police, who sent a team of divers to the indicated place. According to police, he noticed the car on his sonar, a means of sound detection of underwater objects using acoustic radiation.

The found car was turned upside down and covered with several layers of silt and algae. A 1987 Chevrolet Camaro was successfully hauled up to the surface by divers and a crane truck. The car, which had been lying at the bottom for three decades, was expected to be in a terrible state.

The most surprising is the fact that the bridge under which the car was lying was repaired 15 years ago, writes Autoevolution. Despite this, the car went unnoticed by the workers.

The police managed to establish the owner of the stolen car, but they failed to return the find to him. He died without ever knowing that his missing Camaro had been found.

In July, a similar story happened with the 1987 Ferrari Mondial sports car, which was fished out of the Amsterdam canal. The car, put on the wanted list 30 years ago, could become a decoration for an aquarium at the local zoo.
