POCATELLO, Idaho -- A man's body was found in a Snake River reservoir after the stolen car he was in apparently drove off a 200-foot cliff.

Authorities in southeastern Idaho haven't released the identity of the man, who was found in the American Falls reservoir on Monday.

The car had been reported stolen on July 1. It was found half-submerged.

The Power County Sheriff's Department says the car drove through a field and off the cliff at a point where there's no warning of the precipice.

A spokeswoman says, "It just kind of goes straight off a cliff and into the water."

The spot where the car and body were found is located on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation, so the FBI is investigating.
