NEAR ORANGE CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - A car that was stolen from Dordt College Campus Security in 1999 has turned up in a northwest Iowa pond.

Orange City Police say workers were excavating a pond in the Dunlop Wildlife Area and found the car on Dec. 5.

The workers were making the pond deeper by draining the water levels and they saw the car break through the ice.

A member of the Sioux County dive team got into the icy water to hook a cable to the vehicle so it could be pulled out.

They say investigators aren't sure how the car got into the pond, but have learned that it was reported stolen at Dordt College in Sioux Center 14 years ago.
