CORNWALL – A large SUV was recovered from the St. Lawrence River in the east end of Cornwall on Friday (March 2) after several attempts by divers and a towing company.
In an update to Cornwall Newswatch Monday morning, Cornwall police Const. Dan Cloutier said the vehicle was a Cadillac Escalade.
“There was nobody inside. We are still searching for the owner of the vehicle. It’s unknown how or why it got there…or exactly when either,” Cloutier told CNW.
Cloutier said there were licence plates on the Escalade but they came back “unattached” to the vehicle in a registration search.
He said the O.P.P. dive team did attend the scene Friday afternoon on Montreal Road to help in the recovery by Herb’s Towing. Cornwall firefighters were also helping on scene.
“The investigation is ongoing into when, why and who. Thank God there was nobody in it,” Cloutier said.
