Olympic National Park: Divers check out mystery cars in Lake Crescent

Scuba divers examined two cars beneath the waters of Lake Crescent on Monday, trying to solve a 72-year-old mystery involving the disappearance of a Bogachiel couple.

Olympic National Park spokeswoman Barb Maynes said the work is part of the park’s ongoing effort to find and document what lies at the bottom of the lake.

The divers examined one car found in about 45 feet of water east of Barnes Point, determined to be a Ford Model A, and a second car found about 65 feet beneath the surface at Pirates Cove, which could be the 1927 Chevrolet driven by Mr. and Mrs. Russell Warren.

The Warrens disappeared July 3, 1929.
