A sport utility vehicle reported stolen last year was found in Lake Lanier Tuesday afternoon.

A fisherman found the unoccupied vehicle at Mountain View Park boat ramp off Browns Bridge Road, said Col. Jeff Strickland, Hall County Sheriff's Office spokesman.

The fisherman saw "oily bubbles" coming from the water near the boat ramp and used his sonar to look at the object, Strickland said. It appeared to be a vehicle.

Members from the Hall County Dive Team confirmed the presence of a blue 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser.

Strickland said the SUV was reported stolen in June 2010 from a residence in the 4400 block of Browns Bridge Road.
