PONTIAC, Mich. (WXYZ) — Two people are confirmed dead after a vehicle was recovered from Terry Lake in Pontiac.

Deputies say dive team members arrived and found the vehicle in about 25 feet of water at the bottom of the lake. Two people were found inside with no signs of life.

The victims were identified as Robert Grandberry, 69, and Cathy Grandberry, 67, both of Pontiac.
