Cops pulling sinking Jeep from Texas lake discover woman ALIVE inside – two days after she went missing
- The extraordinary discovery was made by a local fisherman at Lake o’ the Pines
- Photos show the car was almost completely submerged with only its roof visible
- Police have yet to identify the woman but said it seems to have been an accident
Police pulling a sinking Jeep from a Texas lake found a woman alive inside, two days after she went missing.
The miraculous discovery was made by a local fisherman at Lake o’ the Pines on Friday after he spotted the vehicle almost completely submerged in the water.
Photos from the scene show only the roof of the car was visible.
Police said it was unclear how long the Jeep had been in the water, while the woman’s identity, condition and the circumstances of her disappearance have not been made public.
Deputies and a local wrecker service saw a woman was moving inside the vehicle as they were preparing to haul it out of the lake, according to Marion County Sheriff Office.

The submerged vehicle was found around 40ft from a boat ramp at the water’s edge, but police said they had found nothing suspicious about how the Jeep ended up in the lake
It was while the woman was being rescued and taken to a local hospital that it was determined she was listed as a missing person from the Longview Texas Police Department.
She had been reported missing just hours earlier at 12.35am in Longview, a town around 24 miles southwest of the lake.
Commenters took to social media to express their amazement at the discovery.
Rebekah Lee Butler said: ‘Praise God! Thank you to everyone involved. That’s pretty awesome she survived and that rescue workers could get to her in time.’
Others speculated on divine intervention. Brooke Drake wrote: ‘What are the chances there was an air pocket big enough to last who knows how long? Then what are the chances that the police promptly respond to a car under water? This is just a miracle.’
Melissa Dobbs, records administrator at Longview Police, told NPR they were as yet unable to release further information ‘given the details of this case’.
The sheriff’s department said it hasn’t found anything suspicious as to how the Jeep ended up in the lake.
It was discovered about 40 feet away from a boat ramp, but Captain Chuck Rogers of Marion County Sheriff Office said: ‘There was nothing uncovered during the investigation to suggest this case was anything more than an accident.’
