On Thursday afternoon, Dakota County Deputies were called to the Mississippi River to investigate a report of a found vehicle in the river. According to a DCSO post on social media, the DCSO Dive Team recovered a 1986 Mercury Cougar. Fishermen reported seeing something on their sonars for awhile, so divers took to waters to check it out. Despite zero visibility, a deputy was able to hook it up on the first dive and bring it to the surface. County officers believe the relic has served as a home for fish for many years. The investigation remains open.
