The Monroe County Sheriff's Department is investigating a car that was found in the Erie Canal on Sweden Walker Road under the canal bridge in Sweden Thursday morning.

Emergency crews were called to the scene around 8:30 a.m. after a passerby saw the vehicle and called 911.

The Monroe County Sheriff's scuba team has been called to the scene to search the canal and the vehicle. No one was found in the car, but the scuba team did find a safe in the car. They are not sure where it is from.

Monroe County Sheriff's Deputies say the car was reported stolen out of Rochester in July.

The investigation is ongoing.
