EARL TWP. >> Af­ter a hiker alerted po­lice on New Year’s Day that there was an over­turned car in Trout Run Reser­voir, state po­lice dis­cov­ered the ve­hi­cle was stolen about 20 years ago.

No one was in­side the ve­hi­cle, which po­lice said ap­pears to have been in the reser­voir for sev­eral years.

The car was found up­side­down, which may have be­come vis­i­ble as wa­ter lev­els in the reser­voir were lower than usual, po­lice said. Sev­eral dive teams as­sisted in search­ing the ve­hi­cle and re­mov­ing it from the wa­ter.

Ac­cord­ing to me­dia re­ports, the car ap­peared to have been in­ten­tion­ally sunk.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing by state po­lice at the Read­ing bar­racks.

TOM KELLY III — FOR DIG­I­TAL FIRST ME­DIA

A car stolen 20 years ago was found up­side-down at the bot­tom of Trout Run Reser­voir in Earl Town­ship.
