The Marion County Sheriff's Office said a fisherman called 911 after he found a black Jeep submerged in the south side of Lake O' the Pines. He told dispatchers that the Jeep was about forty feet from the boat ramp.

Deputies and a local wrecker crew arrived about 20 minutes later, and when they started preparing to remove the Jeep from the lake they discovered a person was still inside and moving.

The woman was rescued safely from the vehicle and EMS took her to a local hospital.

During the incident, it was determined the woman was listed as a missing person from the Longview Texas Police Department.

She had been reported missing at 12:35 a.m. on Friday. She was found and rescued hours later on Friday morning.

It is unknown how long she was inside the submerged vehicle or how the vehicle ended up in the lake.

"Given the details of this case, we are unable to release any information at this time," said Melissa Dobbs, records administrator at the Longview Police Department. "There was nothing uncovered during the investigation to suggest this case was anything more than an accident."
