A fisherman found a true whopper Friday morning in the Fox River.
A Porsche was discovered floating downstream with a small part of its roof and hatchback showing above the muddy water. The sports car was just south of the I-90 overpass where Trout Park Boulevard ends at the eastern edge of the Fox River.
Elgin Fire Department divers and police crews failed to find any signs of life in or around the car, but its keys had been left in the ignition.
Fire department divers from Elgin, Hoffman Estates, Pingree Grove, South Elgin and West Dundee performed "sweep exercises" around the car for about a half mile and determined no one had fallen into the icy river.
The car, believed to be a 2004 Porsche Cayenne, had been stolen in Chicago, police said.
The vehicle was believed to have been dumped in the river, police said, but where it entered the river was still unknown late Friday.
The fisherman called in his find about 9:30 a.m. Friday.
The car will be taken to Chicago, where police will determine whether there is any evidence, such as fingerprints, in their theft investigation.
