CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. (WHEC) – The Ontario County Sheriff's Underwater Search and Recovery Team responded to Canandaigua Lake after a fisherman reported they saw a vehicle underwater Friday morning.

Deputies say a vehicle from the early 1950s to early 1960s was found 21 feet underwater and 300 yards offshore near Butler and West Lake roads. Due to the amount of silt and algae, deputies say the vehicle had been there for many years.

The trunk, passenger’s door, and interior were missing from the vehicle and no identification numbers were located on the vehicle. 

A search and recovery team did not find any human remains in the vehicle. 

The DEC will determine what action is needed, if any, regarding the recovery of the vehicle.
