The Kern County Sheriff's Office recovery of Zacharey Wilks' vehicle was successful, according to his family.
The Kern County Sheriff's Search and Rescue Team had plans to recover the vehicle this weekend after it was found last week, off State Route 33 and east of Soda Lake Road.
The car and Wilks have been missing for over two years.
Wilks' family says Zacharey has still not been located.
They remain hopeful more clues will be discovered now that the car has been found.
The California Highway Patrol says inspectors will be taking a look at the vehicle to see if anything was mechanically wrong with it, causing it to crash.
The Lompoc Police Department says they have not received any tips on Zacharey's whereabouts since he originally went missing.
Anyone with information is asked to give them a call.
We have reached out to the Kern County Sheriff's Office for more information on the search and are still wating to hear back.
