    Absolutely thrilled with this news! I was so sure these three would never be found, and am very happy to be wrong about that.

    We have more than 200 lakes here in Oklahoma and I'm hoping LE takes that sonar equipment on a grand tour of all of them.

    2 cars, 5 bodies and one of the cars is a 50's model.

    Possibly the bodies of 16-year-old Jimmy Allen Williams, 18-year-old Leah Gail Johnson, and 18-year-old Thomas Michael Rios who were reported missing November 20th, 1970.

    Probably, by the yet unidentified couple driving the other car. How sad.

    Interesting theory, the other car looks pretty intact tho ? The camaro has no back end?? Or is it just the angle?

    Plus the 50's car went missing in the early 60's?

    Again, I mention how many of theses'missing and the car is missing too' stories end up with water.

    I read that all the parents have passed away in the intervening years, never knowing what happened to their children. So sad.....

    It says in the article that the three teens were last seen riding around Sayre in Jimmy's 1969 Chevrolet Camaro.and from the photo, the back of one car is showing and it looks to me like the back of a '69 Camaro. I hope this brings some closure to some families. Very sad that young lives were cut short.

    The front view is DEFINITELY a '69 Camaro. It has to be them. Not sure about the other car. (It looks more like a late 40's to me).

    The Custer County Sheriff's Department is seeking information from the public after the skeletal remains of six people were discovered in Foss Lake.

    The bodies could be that of (from left) Jimmy Allen Williams, Leah Gail Johnson and Thomas Michael Rios. The teens were reported missing November 20, 1970, last seen riding around Sayre, Oklahoma in Jimmy’s 1969 Chevrolet Camaro.

    CUSTER COUNTY, Oklahoma - The Custer County Sheriff's Department is seeking information from the public after the skeletal remains of six people in two separate cars were discovered in Foss Lake Tuesday afternoon.
    According to OHP, the cars were discovered during a training session with a new sonar device.

    Crews pulled two vehicles from the lake in Custer County. The first was an early 1950's model car that had three bodies inside. Sheriff Bruce Peoples told the Elk City Daily News he believes the remains belong to a couple last seen in Canute in the early 1960s. The two were reportedly on their way to Foss Lake and never seen again. It's unknown who they believe is the third body.

    The second car pulled from the lake also had three bodies inside, believed to be three teenagers reported missing from the Sayre area in the early 1970s.

    ^This, but totally fascinating as well. Just saw the link posted by the Grateful Doe Facebook page and had to come straight over here to check out the discussions.
