A young couple who went missing nearly 12 years ago has been found dead in a car at the bottom of River Volga in central Russia.

Ilya Zhirnov, 25, and his girlfriend Kira Cherkasova, 22, disappeared without a trace.

They were last sighted in December 2005 when Mr Zhirnov borrowed a car from his father to pick up Miss Cherkasova from her place of work.

Russian Police investigated the missing couple but was eventually forced to close the case as a result of lack of evidence, and the families have been left in the dark as to the couple’s fate until today.

Fortunately, the couple’s car was found in the river by a local diving enthusiast when he was exploring the waters near a local beach. He informed the police who were able to identify the remains of the couple with the car documents which had survived a decade underwater.

The Russian Police believe the lovers’ death was an accident and that icy roads near the river may have been responsible for the tragedy.

However, the police investigation is still ongoing and the findings will be made public in due course.
