GENEVA, Ohio — Fire and dive crews in Geneva were involved in a search of Lake Erie early Friday after a vehicle was found in the water.

The Geneva Fire Department was called to County Line and Lake roads at just before 2 a.m. after reports of a car in the lake.

Witnesses on scene provided fire and police with photos of the car in the lake, and divers were quickly deployed. They were able to clear the vehicle and started searching the area.

Ohio State Highway Patrol was searching the area after the water rescue was called off.

The incident is still under investigation.
