MIAMI (AP) – Police say a car found submerged in a South Florida lake with two people inside belongs to a couple who went missing over the weekend.

Local media outlets report that the red 2014 Toyota Corolla was pulled from a lake Thursday afternoon in southwest Miami-Dade County.

Miami-Dade police say they haven’t identified the bodies, but the license plate matches the couple’s vehicle.

Authorities say Alexandra Picon and Brandon Arana, both 21, were last seen Sunday afternoon at a Kendall bar, about 10 miles to the north of the lake.

Authorities weren’t immediately saying how the car ended up in the lake or how the victims died.
