Members of the Wayne County Underwater Search and Recovery team assisted in pulling a sunken car from the Detroit River near Wyandotte Thursday.
Ecorse police did not know the make and model of the car found with no occupants inside at about 5 p.m. Thursday. Also, a license plate or vehicle identification number had not been located on the car at that time.
The investigation is ongoing.
Officials were gathered at Ecorse Marina, 693 Biddle, at about 2 p.m., along with a large tow truck. Wyandotte and Ecorse police were on the scene, along with the county team.
According to Ecorse police, the underwater team was performing a drill in the Detroit River on Thursday when they came across the car.
A helicopter also was seen hovering over top of the scene, but details on it are unclear at this time.
Several Wyandotte Patch readers said they saw the helicopter.
