    Oklahoma state law enforcement officials have pulled two vehicles from a lake that may contain the bodies of six people listed as missing for decades.

    The Daily Elk Citian reported that the vehicles -- which were recovered from Foss Lake in western Oklahoma Tuesday afternoon -- appear to match a Camaro missing with three Sayre teenagers since 1970 and an older Chevrolet with two Canute residents missing since the late 1950s or early 1960s.

    The Camaro was from 1969 and belonged to 16-year-old Jimmy Williams, KOKH reports. The car and Williams were last seen on Nov. 20, 1970, along with two of Williams' friends, 18-year-old Thomas Rios and 18-year-old Leah Johnson.

    The second vehicle, a Chevrolet dating from the 1950s, may be linked to the disappearance of a couple from the town of Canute in the early 1960s. The couple were last seen heading to the lake, the Elk City Daily News reports, according to News9. A third body was found in the car, but authorities have not identified all of the remains.

    Was based at Ft. Sill, in Lawton, back in the 80s for a short time. There have always been rumors all over southwestern Oklahoma (all over Oklahoma, really) about lakes "filled with bodies" and other similar stories that were chalked up to the tall tales of the idle. Every community seemed to have a similar story about its own lake and its own missing persons.

    Maybe some of them weren't tall tales ...
