EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say an eight-year-old missing person case was resolved in Oregon after the drought exposed a car that had been submerged in a pond.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1OaWkXy ) that Lane County sheriff’s officials say a driver on Monday spotted the car partially sticking out of a pond near a highway off-ramp.

Detective Carl Wilkerson says investigators confirmed that the car was associated with a 59-year-old Junction City woman who went missing in November 2007. Linda Lee Perry had left her house to go shopping in Springfield and never returned.

He says a dive team found human remains in the pond and identified them as Perry’s.

Investigators think Perry died in a traffic crash.

Her family could not be reached for comment.
