RHODHISS, N.C. (WBTV) – Human remains were found inside a car pulled from Rhodhiss Lake Tuesday, according to officials.
The mud-filled car is estimated to have been in the water for at least 40 years, officials say. The identity of the person found has not been released but officials believe the remains belong to a man who has been missing since the 1970s.
They do not believe foul play is involved.
Investigators are hoping to find more information and evidence in the mud. The remains have been sent to a medical examiner to be identified.
