SFD divers find rusted out truck in 12 Mile Bayou after tip from fishermen


SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – A rusted out vehicle located by Shreveport Fire Department divers Monday morning will remain where it is on the bottom of 12 Mile Bayou, at least for now.

According to Assistant to the Fire Chief Fred Sanders, divers found the truck a few hours after being called to the scene near Ford Street early Monday morning on a tip from some fisherman who said they spotted it Friday on their sonar.

Sanders said it looks like the truck has been down there for some time. Divers, who were working in low-visibility conditions due to muddy water, were unable to find a Vehicle Identification Number or tag number because of the condition of the vehicle.

Divers believe it is either a truck or an El Camino, because it has a truck bed. It was found in about 16 feet of water.

No evidence of remains were found in the vehicle, and it will remain in the water unless someone requests its recovery, according to Sanders.

Shreveport Fire Department divers are in the water on 12 Mile Bayou searching for a car reportedly spotted by fishermen on Friday.
