Det. Mike Williams of the Sikeston Department of Public Safety, right, checks the plates of a stolen vehicle Monday while Satterfield's Wrecker Service employees pull the car out of Collin's Lake. With the assistance of the Missouri State Water Patrol the vehicle was found in the lake just south of the Sikeston Recreational Complex. Left: Divers with the Missouri State Water Patrol prepare to go down to find the vehicle. The car was reported stolen on Dec. 20, 1998 at Oak Meadows in Sikeston and an arrest and conviction has already been made in the case. DPS officers were aware for some time the car was in the water, however, they needed the services of the Water Patrol to find the car in the water which had very little visibility.
