A group of workers slowly but surely pulled a sports car with tabs from November 2003 from the bottom of Lake Sarah on Thursday.

The process, which took more than three hours to complete, ended in front of a small crowd gathered at Sundquist Park on the west side of the popular recreational and fishing lake when the vehicle, submerged in the lake for at least 19 years, was pulled onto a flatbed.

There was no evidence of a body found in the car, and foul play is not suspected, said Murray County Chief Deputy Sheriff Heath Landsman.
