    6 Missing for Decades Found in Oklahoma Lake

    Lingering mysteries may have been solved at Foss Lake




    Three teens went missing in 1970

    Two mysteries, one 43 years old, the other a half-century, may have been solved—accidentally. The Elk City Daily News reports that Oklahoma authorities testing out new sonar technology at Foss Lake last Tuesday stumbled upon two cars about 12 feet below the surface. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation raised the vehicles yesterday, and officers were surprised to find something in them: the remains of six people, believed to be tied to a 1970 cold case and an even older rumor.

    In the first case, teens Jimmy Williams, Thomas Rios, and Gail Johnson were driving a 1969 Chevy Camaro to an Elk City football game on Nov. 20, 1970, when they vanished. The Daily Elk Citian reports that a blue Camaro matching the description of the car Williams was driving was pulled from the lake; KFOR reports that at least one of the victims in the car has been IDed. As for the second car, Custer County Sheriff Bruce Peoples recalls that as a state trooper in 1973, "I heard rumors that sometime in the early '60s there were two or three people in a car ... [who] were headed for Foss Lake and never seen again." The second car, possibly a 1951 or 1952 model Chevy, is believed to be tied to these missing people.

      It doesn't sound to me as if they were looking for any of them very hard after they disappeared.

        Well, to be fair, they probably thought they had been abducted by aliens, because that does happen so often. ::

          Cops have a long history of dong nothing. It isn't a recent thing.

            12 FEET OF WATER? Just off the road or at the end of the boat launch???

            No one ever seen the tops of the cars on a windless day when the waters are crystal clear?

              The story on Fox said no human remains have been found in the cars.

              I thought one of the cars looks like a 69 Camaro but few details were on the televised version.
