GREENFIELD, Ind. — A man was found dead in a retention pond in Greenfield Wednesday.

Police said officers got a call about the vehicle in the pond Wednesday afternoon and arrived to find a truck partially submerged in the water near Springhurst Boulevard on the west side of Greenfield. They also found the man, identified only as a 61-year-old Greenfield man, face down in the water.

The man's name is being withheld pending notification of his family.

Police said no one else was found in the truck or the water. The investigation into the man's death and how long his truck had been in the water is ongoing.

As part of the investigation, police are asking residents in the area to review surveillance video from their homes for evidence of a dark-colored Ford pick-up truck.

"This footage may help detectives piece together what happened and provide closure for family and friends," police wrote in a release.
