One of two cars pulled from the bottom of an Oklahoma lake contains the remains of three teenagers who went missing in 1970, a police official says.

But Custer County Sheriff Bruce Peoples said investigators are still trying to determine whose remains were in the other car pulled from Foss Lake.

He says the car may be linked to the 1969 disappearance of three people or the disappearance of two others about a decade earlier.

In both cases, those missing were believed to have been in an early-model Chevrolet like the one recovered on Tuesday.

The state medical examiner's office said it believes the remains of six people were recovered. The Highway Patrol says three skulls have been recovered.
