Brady Township — A man and his granddaughter were fishing when they spotted what turned out to be an old car beneath the waters of a Saginaw County pond.

John Jorencz said his 22-year-old granddaughter said it was a car but “I didn’t believe it was, until I saw the antenna.”

The Saginaw County sheriff’s department dive team responded Tuesday in Brady Township to help recover the Ford Taurus. The mud- and plant-covered car was pulled slowly from the water. A search didn’t find human remains inside.

Authorities are investigating how the car got into the pond.

The car was about 30 yards from the pond’s edge. Asked by The Saginaw News how the fishing trip went, Jorencz says: “We found a car and caught some bluegill.”
