Body found inside vehicle in river near Lake Overholser

OKLAHOMA CITY - Officials recovered a vehicle found in the North Canadian River near Lake Overholser Saturday.

Authorities say they received a 911 call around 1:55 a.m. and responded to the area near NW 39th and Council. Some people were fishing nearby.

"They had heard tires screeching and a loud crash. They then saw taillights in the water," said Lt. Jeff Spruill with the Oklahoma City Police.

Officials confirmed Saturday afternoon that a female's body was found inside the vehicle. The search was made difficult due to deep, murky waters in the river.

Authorities have not released the woman's name but say she was in her 20s. It appears she was driving a dark-colored Mustang.
