Car found upside down in Lincoln creek

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) – An investigation is underway after a car was found in a northeast Lincoln creek.

Lincoln Police were called to Ballard Park in Havelock, just before 4:20 a.m. Wednesday after someone reported a car upside down in the creek.

When officers arrived on scene, no one was inside the car, the keys were in the ignition, and a child’s car safety seat had been removed.

Police attempted to contact the owner a short time later at her address, but she was not home at the time.

A short time later, the owner contacted police and said her vehicle had been stolen on New Year’s Day.
