CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - A stolen car was found in the Diversion Channel near Cape Girardeau.

According to Lt. David James with the Cape Girardeau County Sheriff's Department, someone reported a 1997 Firebird stolen from Sikeston back in 2002.

Investigators have no idea who stole it or how it ended up in the Diversion Channel.

James says it happened so long ago, there is probably slim chance they'll ever find out.

Someone spotted the car over the weekend and called authorities.
