Divers find stolen vehicles in East St. Louis lake

EAST ST. LOUIS – Divers undergoing search training in a southwestern Illinois state park's lake found a lot more than rusty beer cans and mossy tires.

The Belleville News-Democrat (http://bit.ly/1mWtvwi ) reports that search-and-rescue divers from various agencies Tuesday found several stolen vehicles submerged in the lake at Frank Holten State Park in East St. Louis.

Authorities say some of the vehicles had been missing for decades. Investigators say a 1972 Plymouth sedan that was recovered had been reported stolen in 1983. A 1993 Plymouth Voyager van salvaged from the water has been missing since 2005.
