Macon police investigators are trying to find out how a black Dodge Dakota pickup truck ended up in the Ocmulgee River Tuesday.
The pickup was sighted around 12:45 p.m. by a person on the Spring Street bridge, who saw the top of the submerged vehicle.
It was discovered about 200 feet south of the Spring Street boat ramp at the Ocmulgee riverwalk. Police say it may have floated down the river from another spot.
When a tow truck pulled the pickup from the river around 2 p.m., there was nobody inside. Macon police and Macon-Bibb dive teams searched the area around the pickup, but didn't find anything.
Police say there's a tag on the pickup, and they'll use it to locate the owner.
There were keys in the truck, but no other personal belongings, other than a baby seat in back.
A Macon police news release says the truck was reported stolen on Feb. 4 from Ridge Avenue.
