UPDATE: A fisherman was reportedly out on the water Sunday afternoon when a car was spotted submerged in the water.

Crews responded to pull the car out of the water, but they said it appears to have been there in a while. The car was covered in moss, so they will clean it up before working to find out who the car belongs to.

Dayton Sgt. Coleman said they did look inside and found nothing suspicious about the car.
