ELK CITY, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma troopers say a Camaro missing since 1970 with three teenagers inside was likely damaged when it hit Foss Lake, perhaps at a high speed.
The car, plus another one missing since 1969, were recovered last week after troopers testing sonar equipment detected them near a boat ramp. Police believe they have solved two missing persons cases involving six people.

Trooper George Hoyle told the Daily Elk Citian newspaper that the Camaro was running when it hit the water. He said the driver was driving "a little faster than he should have" and that the impact damaged the radiator fan, a motor mount and the fuel pump.
Hoyle says the evidence suggests foul play was not involved in the teenagers' disappearance and that the driver was possibly unfamiliar with his surroundings.
