On Tuesday afternoon at around 2:45pm the Washington County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a car submerged in the Boltonville Mill Pond in the Town of Farmington.  The caller was a fisherman who had been at the pond for over an hour.  He was casting from shore and got his line stuck on an object that upon further examination appeared to be a car.  The car was approximately 15 yards off shore completely submerged underwater. Sheriff’s Deputies along with the Washington County Sheriff Dive Team responded to the scene.  The vehicle and area were searched by divers and no victims were located.  The vehicle was removed from the Pond. This case remains under investigation however it is believed that the car was accidentally driven into the pond sometime in the early morning hours of November 1st where it remained unreported until Tuesday.  Sheriff Deputies believe the driver of the car was able to escape the vehicle and swim to shore safely.  The driver then left the area without reporting the incident to authorities.
