The mystery of the truck pulled out of the Duluth-Superior Harbor last week has been solved. Well, kind of.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office says workers dredging the harbor pulled the remnants of a 1978 Ford pick-up truck out of the water Thursday. 

Deputies say the vehicle was examined by investigators from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office and they have determined it was reported stolen to the Duluth Police Department on August 25, 1990. 

A press release from the sheriff's office says they have notified Duluth police, and now consider their case closed. 

Deputies said on Friday that the license plate, BA37-546, was last registered in 1991.
