A tow truck pulled a stolen car from the Colorado River on Friday evening.

A man and a woman saw the trunk of the dark blue car poking out of the river Friday afternoon when they took their dog to the river’s edge for a swim.

No people were found inside the car, which had its trunk and doors open when Mesa County search and rescue members swam to examine the car. Mesa County Sheriff’s Department deputies, Palisade and Clifton fire departments, Palisade police and the Colorado State Patrol also responded to the scene at 3945 U.S. Highway 6&24 in Palisade.

The car was believed to be one that had been reported stolen, Palisade Fire Chief Richard Rupp said.

The car had a Colorado license plate and had not been seen the previous evening by the couple who reported the incident. They had taken their dog swimming Thursday as well.
