Divers Search Farm Pond For Submerged Vehicle
Cynthia M. Ellis, The Telegraph (April 22, 2004)

ROXANA- Divers were called in Wednesday night to search for what was believed to be a truck submerged in a farm pond and to determine whether it was occupied, authorities said. The search was being conducted on the Losch Farm in the 4200 block of Hedge Road in rural Roxana.

John Losch told authorities he was mowing around a pond behind the farm’s greenhouse Wednesday evening when he discovered tire tracks leading into the pond. The Roxana Fire Department notified the Alton Volunteer Emergency Corps about a possible vehicle in the water about 7:15 p.m., said Anthony Jennings, AVEC’S deputy commander.

Member of AVEC and the Twin Rivers Search and Rescue group placed a Nova Ray submersible in the water and said it detected a truck beneath the surface about 15 feet from the pond’s shore.

At that point, authorities called in divers to conduct a further search about 9 p.m. As of press time, searchers said they had no indication whether the submerged vehicle was occupied.
