MESA -- A golf ball diver at a Valley course found a car underwater today.

It happened at the Red Mountain golf course in Mesa near Power road and Redmont.

Officers say the license plate on the car matches one that was stolen about a year ago.

"When I hit it, at first i thought it was an actual pipe that went to an intake box that we clean off at the golf courses... But as I started feeling around it you feel it had two mirrors on it." said the diver.

"And it's definitely wedged down very deep in the mud."

The car was pulled from the lake. Algae covering the vehicle would indicate it had been underwater for some time.

Residents say the fence surrounding the area was knocked down about five months ago.
