ROSE VALLEY, Sask. – A vehicle was found submerged Monday and Saskatchewan RCMP are trying to find out how it got there.

Around 9:40 a.m., two people were walking on the Yellow Quill First Nation when they noticed the vehicle approximately 50 feet from shore in Nut Lake.

There was no indication of anyone trapped inside so the RCMP underwater recovery team will conduct a dive Friday.

Due to vegetation surrounding the lake and no clear entry point, Mounties say this incident is likely not recent.

RCMP say the vehicle may have been driven onto the body of water while it was frozen.

Although the VIN number and licence plate are obstructed, the vehicle may have been reported stolen from a farm south of Rose Valley, Sask. about a year ago.

It is undetermined when or if the vehicle will be removed.

The vehicle is believed to be a newer model black Ford Explorer Sport Trac.

Anyone with information is asked to contact RCMP at 306-322-2550 or 306-327-1200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Yellow Quill First Nation is approximately 195 kilometres east of Saskatoon.
