COPY-Gentry's car raised from the quarry

The SUV belonging to missing Chelsea woman Elaine Gentry has been raised from the water and is being towed toward land. There is still no word of whether or not Gentry's body is inside.

Gentry's SUV will be placed on a wrecker and slowly emptied of the water inside so that potential evidence will not be compromised. The SUV will then be taken to the Shelby County Sheriff's Office for further investigation.

Officials at the scene say that if Gentry's body is found inside, they will not make a positive identification today. The county coroner is at the scene. Captain Kenneth Birchfield with the Shelby County Sheriff's Office says the coroner's presence is a precaution, and does not indicate that a body has or has not been found.

Divers have worked today collecting photographic evidence of the exterior and interior of the vehicle and the surrounding area as it sits more than 40 feet under water in a quarry near Leeds.

The vehicle is expected to be on its way to the sheriff's office in a couple of hours.

Shelby County Sheriff Chris Curry says he suspects foul play in the case, due to the location of the SUV in the quarry. The Chelsea woman has been missing since March 29.
