GREENE COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Crews just pulled a red vehicle out a local lake in Greene County. 

We've been following this search since Monday afternoon.

Officers found the vehicle in a lake at the Greene-Sullivan State Forest. We talked to conservation officer Nathan Lutz at the scene. He told us an officer on patrol found tracks leading to the water on Monday afternoon.

Not long after that, crews used sonar equipment and found a vehicle. Crews were working in the dark.

But Lutz says that wasn't the only challenge.

"When we have strip pits like this...there are several different walls and barricades where the mining companies were digging when they first put these pits in, which cause some difficulties in locating and maintaining a mark on a type of vehicle in the water," Lutz said.

We are tracking two active Silver Alerts in the area.

At this time, there is no way of knowing if the vehicle is related to either missing person.

But, our crew at the scene just watched crews pull a red vehicle from the water. Officials confirm there was a white male located inside the truck when it was removed from the water.  

We will bring you the latest information as soon as it becomes available.
