GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - Goose Creek first responders were able to remove a car submerged in water off of Red Bank Road.

According to Goose Creek Fire Chief Steve Chapman, the car was in a pond near the Hallmark at Red Bank Road Apartment Complex.

Chapman said he's not sure how long the car was there because ice was frozen over the car itself.

It has been confirmed by authorities that nobody was inside the truck and there is no indication that a person is in the frozen pond.

The vehicle was found with the car windows rolled up and the car doors locked.

While a dive team recovered the car, North Charleston police reportedly spoke to someone at the residence of the registered owner of the car who said the owner was last seen leaving the residence late Saturday night and has not been seen or heard from since.

Authorities also made contact with area hospitals and detention centers and nobody reported have any contact with anyone by the registered owner's name.

Before officer cleared the scene, the registered owner of the car called her sister and said she heard the police were looking for her and when she went outside her home she found that her work truck was missing from her North Charleston home.

The owner's sister called on behalf of the owner as the owner could speak little English, according to the incident report.

The registered owner of the car told authorities she went to a party Saturday night when her work truck was stolen.
