During the course of sonar training in western Oklahoma’s Foss Lake earlier this week, dive teams inadvertently came across two vehicles on the lake bed: a Chevy Camaro and an older Chevy vehicle. A scheduled dive on Tuesday to recover the vehicles resulted in the discovery of the skeletal remains of six people.
While authorities have not yet identified any of the remains, it is suspected that they could belong to missing persons cases that were opened in the late 1950s and 1970, but ran cold with no leads. Three teenagers from the town of Sayre were reported missing in 1970 after the last place they were seen was driving around in a 1969 Chevy Camaro, while a couple from Canute and a third person were reported missing in the late 1950s, last seen in an older model Chevy car.
The remains are currently being examined by the ME’s office in Elk City.
