BEAUFORT, N.C. — A sports utility vehicle that disappeared in 2005 at the same time as its driver has been found in waters off Beaufort with the remains of a body in it.

Multiple media outlets reported Tuesday that a recreational diver found the 1998 Jeep Cherokee in Gallants Channel. Authorities said the Jeep and its Virginia license plate matched the description of a vehicle driven by George Edward Quinn, who has been missing since Feb. 5, 2005.

Authorities said Quinn who was reported missing after a break-up with his girlfriend.

Chief Detective Jason Wank of the Carteret County Sheriff’s Department has worked on the case since the beginning. He says he hopes deputies will be able to bring closure to Quinn’s family, who have been notified of the finding. DNA testing still must be performed.
