TRUSSVILLE, AL (WBRC) -

UPDATE: The funeral time for Carroll has been set for Friday at 11 a.m. at Oak Hill Cemetery in Oneonta.

ORIGINAL STORY: A body found Saturday inside a vehicle submerged in a Trussville pond has been identified as a Margaret man.

The Jefferson County Coroner said Michael Carroll, 41, was identified Monday by dental records. He had been missing for almost a year.

Carroll's body and his vehicle were discovered Saturday afternoon as firefighters were removing another abandoned vehicle from a small lake at the intersection of Camp Coleman Road and Highway 11.  Detectives with the Trussville Police Department says it appear Carroll's truck entered the water at a high rate of speed.

Carroll had not been seen since Feb. 5, 2012, when he left his brother's house saying he was going to work.
