IRONWOOD, MI (WTAQ) - The body of a missing northern Wisconsin man has been found in his vehicle, after it drove into an abandoned mine shaft which had ten feet of water.

The vehicle was found Sunday in a shaft known as "The Caves" in nearby Ironwood Michigan.

Police said Jussila drove through a barbed-wire fence before plunging into the former mine shaft.
