Deputies now say there were only two vehicles found Saturday in Alligator Bay, and both were reported stolen some 14 years ago.
A person fishing discovered one of the vehicles Saturday afternoon.
Onslow County deputies at first thought there were three submerged vehicles. But the third object in the water turned out to be a sunken wooden boat.
No bodies were found in either vehicle. Deputies believe the vehicles, both Hyundai's, were reported stolen to Jacksonville police in June 1997 and July 1998.
No one has been arrested yet in the case.
